“Children flourish at the pre-school. Leaders and staff have high expectations for children's learning and development. They complete comprehensive assessments and observations of what children know and can do, to determine their starting points. They use this information to plan for children's next steps in learning.

“Staff provide rich opportunities for children to learn about different cultures. For example, children enjoy making Caribbean fruit salad during visits from people in the local community, and they learn words related to different languages. Furthermore, they are introduced to musical instruments from different countries, such as bagpipes. These experiences help children to develop an understanding of and respect for diversity.”

The safeguarding measures are effective and there is a strong culture of keeping children safe. The report also found that leaders and staff are passionate about what they do and they have outlined an ambitious curriculum for the children in their care to ensure they develop and make good progress.
