“The environment and accommodation is conducive to supporting children’s continued learning and development; it is organised very well and carefully looked after. Children clearly benefit and thrive as a result.

“The Management team is passionate about providing a quality service and has a strong drive for continuous improvement.  All children make good progress from their starting points.  Teaching strategies are quickly put in place.  They are motivated and excited to learn.  Every opportunity is used to carefully foster children’s growing independence skills.  The Management team reflects upon the effectiveness of the nursery, using staff’s, parent’s and children’s views.  It uses this information well to target priorities through a clear action plan.  Staff are excellent role models for the children.  They are kind, sensitive and communicate clearly with each other.  Children behave well and learn how to take turns and share resources together.”  Ofsted Inspector Report
