Children are very happy and settled; they share very close relationships with all staff
All children make excellent progress in relation to their starting points. They are exceptionally well prepared for the next stages in their learning and for school

Staff work in very close partnerships with parents and other professionals to provide continuity in learning and care for the children. There is a strong and valued two-way flow of communication

Children are exceptionally well prepared for their move to school or other early years settings. Staff actively promote children’s understanding of letter sounds and numbers, and they learn to write their names independently. Children make outstanding progress in their learning and are highly confident

"Children demonstrate that they are happy, feel secure and enjoy their time at the pre-school. They are motivated to explore the well-planned learning environment and make new discoveries."
