Spring is in the air and the weather is getting warmer!
The children at The Gables nursery have been busy helping staff enhance their outdoor area.
The nursery staff added a greenhouse and plants. The children were a great help and even made a car to put the seeds in!
They planted onions, lettuces and green beans and are looking forward to seeing the results of their hard work. (The beans have already started to grow, and the children were told the story of Jack & The Beanstalk – maybe they will get to see their own giant at the top!)
Staff added a steering wheel and binoculars to the outdoors area, which went down a treat with the children as they loved exploring and looking at wildlife.
"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."
