What Ofsted say about us…


“Children develop their communication and language skills well. For example, they willingly
engage in conversation about their learning with their key person and talk confidently
about members of their family. They choose their favourite books from the book area.
Older children acquire and apply computer skills. For example, they apply a range of tools
and different colours to create computer drawings. Children handle a range of apparatus
and implements with increasing coordination and control. For example, they mash food to
feed the baby doll in the home area and choose different utensils and ingredients to mix
potions outside.
