The older children at The Gables have been getting very creative by inventing new perfumes & potions in their mud kitchen!
They added different smelling herbs from their sensory garden, glitter and spices then mixed, mashed and whisked their mixtures together.
This helps the children with their physical development, fine and gross motor skills, by using different tools. It also helps with their mathematical understanding of size, quantity, weighing and measuring.
"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
