Our Results Speak for themselves!

We are thrilled to have been rated outstanding in all areas once again in our most recent inspection. Ofsted made the following comments:

“Children explore and learn in the highly stimulating environment, both indoors and outdoors. Staff ensure the environment promotes independence and self-confidence across all areas of learning. Staff are highly motivated and enthusiastic. They have exceptionally high expectations of children, who are consistently encouraged and motivated to learn. Staff sensitively follow children’s lead in play. This enables children to be creative and adopt new ways of learning.”

What The Parents Say

Our Rooms & Outside Space

We are very proud of our setting and our free flow play arrangement, allowing children to choose to play indoors or outside all year round.

We firmly believe that children learn best through play, and so we have many activities that allow them to explore their natural curiosities.

We have a number of areas across the setting all allowing children to chose different avenues of play.

When not playing outside maybe in the mud garden or on our climbing equipment, they may be dressing up in our role play area, painting masterpieces, or enjoying a quiet story.

Our Rooms

Our two rooms are filled with both preplanned group and sole activities, and toys for free play.

Outside Space

We have great outdoor facilities children enjoy year-round. Our free flow system means children are free to choose whether they wish to play indoors or outside.

Role Play Areas

Children love exploring our dress up and role play areas.

Mark Making

Children enjoy mark making and developing their writing skills with a variety of media.

Quiet Areas

We have relaxing places children can go to when they need some quiet time.
