Below are few key highlights from our Ofsted report:

  • “Children confidently explore the learning opportunities available and make independent choices about their play. For example, they enjoy engaging in role play activities as they dress up, use puppets for stories, and explore play dough.”
  • “Management and staff understand their responsibilities to protect children and know the procedures to follow to keep them safe.”
  • “…all children are developing good communication and language skills; they are articulate and confident during their play and interactions with both peers and adults.”
  • “Staff help children to develop a good understanding of the diverse community in their locality.”
  • “The staff work well with parents, for example, they offer them practical information detailing simple activities to try at home.”
  • “Staff use positive encouragement and praise to promote good behaviour, thereby increasing children’s confidence and self-esteem. “
  • “Leaders demonstrate a strong commitment to promoting a good quality provision. They have met all previous recommendations, which have had a good impact on the learning experiences they offer.”
  • “Staff demonstrate a secure knowledge of how children learn and develop. They provide a good range of activities and adapt the learning environment based on children’s interests and varying levels of development.”
