WE'RE OUTSTANDING

AGAIN,

for the the 3rd consecutive inspection, 2011, 2015, 2019

 

Owner/Manager, Pauline Crowder says "Our amazing Early Years team and the wonderful children in our care, were very happy to show our 'Outstanding' setting off to the Ofsted Inspector at our recent Inspection. We're particularly delighted with one of the comments made " Children are highly motivated learners and demonstrate exceptional levels of inquisitiveness. They thrive in the well-resourced and stimulating environment where staff offer a wealth of exciting opportunities to explore and investigate." The Inspector also commented "Children are excited to learn and are extremely well prepared for the move to school".

 

Caring for and educating children since 1990

Our aim is to provide a high quality early education and childcare service in a stimulating, caring, safe and secure environment.

 

We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to experience the very best possible start to their education.
 

We aim to help prepare each child to be confident, independent and self-motivated, having helped them to develop key learning skills such as listening, speaking, concentration, persistence and co-operation.
 

We will do our very best to ensure that the children leave our nursery having established solid foundations on which they can build. This will help to ensure that they continue to flourish throughout their school years and beyond.
