Staff and children alike at The Gables are making the most of the fabulous weather we’ve been having lately. The older children have been on a walk to their Forest School site.
They sang their Forest School song and held onto their magic rope to keep them all safe and together before heading into the woodland.
With the children’s help staff conducted a risk assessment of the site, and made sure they took their health & safety bag of tricks which included a hand washing station.
Using their telescopes, hands and ears to see what they could see and hear in the woods the children did well identifying some of the flowers and animals.
They enjoyed exploring their tent building and having song time around their little ‘pretend’ fire.
"Staff have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the children's individual needs and provide a stimulating environment where all children are excited and motivated to learn. Observations of children are consistently used to plan for children's individual next steps in learning."
Linda Shore, Ofsted Inspector
"This provision is outstanding . All practitioners have high aspirations for children's achievement. This means the nursery is exceptional in the way it meets the needs of all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and they make very rapid progress towards the early learning goals."
Ofsted inspector Caroline Midgley
"The Staff always make my child feel happy, safe and secure. The Staff are always approachable, welcoming any queries, concerns and often encourage new ideas from parents and children. My daughter often get comments she is lovely and often models herself on the staff."
Scott, Olivia's Dad
"My son, eats food at nursery that he wouldn't / doesn't eat at home. Which is fantastic! I think the other children eating well shows him there something more to this dish than he thinks."
