  • Happy
    “Children are happy in the pre-school.  They form very close relationships with the staff and greet them excitedly when they arrive each day.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Youngest age
    “From the youngest age, children settle quickly and enjoy good support from their key person.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Staff support
    “Staff support children’s learning well. They play alongside children and plan activities they know will interest them and offer relevant challenge.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Outside Environment
    “Good use is made of the outside environment and wider community to extend children’s learning.  For example, children make regular trips to their own allotment and tend to the fruit and vegetables they have planted.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Good links
    “There are good links with the village school.  Older children regularly attend events and this helps them become familiar with the school environment.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Daily Routine
    “The daily routine is planned well.  Group times are used effectively to develop children’s speaking and listening skills, and their confidence to socialise with their friends.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Independent
    “Good support is in place to encourage children to be independent.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Sociable
    “Children are very sociable and cooperate well together.  For example, at snack time they listen to one another carefully as they share their news.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Good Quality Teaching
    “The pre-school offers a good start to children’s learning.  Good quality teaching means children concentrate well; they show interest in new things and are keen to ‘have a go’.”
    Ofsted Report
  • Younger Children
    “Younger children gain a great deal from being with the older children. They make good progress with their communication skills and are confident to join in with all activities.”
