Testimonials from visiting practitioners

We would love to visit your nursery again with the rest of the girls. We have come back and described the layout to the others but it really needs to be experienced to capture the atmosphere. From a child‘s point of view, it‘s so exciting there, so magical and so special. I just loved the flow of activities and the opportunities to explore indoors and outdoors. No wonder you‘re all so enthusiastic about your work. Congratulations


The uniqueness of each child is very well understood and the setting works hard to meet the needs of all children. A fully inclusive environment has been created in which children are supported in making excellent progress in their learning and development.

Children are learning the importance of staying healthy because they enjoy very healthy meals and snacks prepared from locally sourced produce.

Children enjoy their time at the setting. This is a calm and industrious environment.

Children play well on their own, with peers and in groups. They enjoy freedom of choice and this develops their critical thinking and decision making skills.

Resources and activities are extremely well organised to allow independent access and develop children‘s confidence significantly.

Parents are encouraged to meet with their child‘s key person. Consequently they are able to feed into the learning journey, creating a holistic view of each child.

“The children are motivated to learn by an extremely enthusiastic staff team who are skilled at promoting children’s development and desire to learn through the use of a variety of teaching strategies” (OFSTED).
