Ofsted say:- This provision is good. The quality of teaching is consistently strong. The well-qualified staff use accurate assessments to identify children's next steps in learning. They provide a balance of both activities led by adults and times for children to freely choose their play. Children gain the skills and attitudes needed for their next steps in learning and school.

The key-person system is well established and effective. Children develop close relationships with the caring and sensitive staff. This supports children to develop high levels of confidence and a strong sense of emotional security.
