Excellent transition arrangements support children to move onto a different base room or on to school with ease and confidence. The nursery provides a rich and vibrant learning environment. Children are able to move throughout the nursery which promotes an inclusive and flexible approach where children organise and plan for their own learning. The free access to the garden and covered play space allows children to learn and explore according to their particular interests and learning styles.
The quality and standards of the early years provision and outcomes for children
Children are flourishing in this warm and welcoming environment. They play a full role in their learning and have established very close relationships with all the staff. They show great confidence and independence as they explore the enabling environment happily and with self-assurance. They show great respect for each other and behave with consideration and thoughtfulness, especially with younger children. Throughout the day all children can choose to play and learn in the fresh air, which benefits their health.
Children move safely on the climbing equipment and slide, developing control and balance. Children’s health is further promoted as they frequently help themselves to drinks and are provided with very nutritious and appealing foods. A well-balanced and varied menu is freshly prepared from local free-range products. This helps children to establish healthy eating habits. At meal times, children sit in sociable groups and eagerly serve themselves. These small groups promote children’s conversation skills very effectively as they chatter happily with their friends.
Children display extremely high levels of confidence and self-esteem. They independently set up their own resources and play cooperatively with each other.Children confidently develop skills for the future as they are adept at using the laptop to write and play games. Children’s learning and development is significantly enhanced by the methods used to observe and assess their progress and the excellent interaction of the staff.
An innovative computerised system holds all the details of every child’s learning interests, abilities and next steps. Each base room has their own interlinked computer where staff can instantly retrieve each child’s learning plans. This enables staff to be very well informed on how best they can support each child if they are working with them. This flexible approach helps children to make rapid progress in their learning.
