  • The environment is bright, welcoming and stimulating. Staff provide a wide range of activities and experiences that meets the children’s individual needs. All children progress well in their learning.   
  • Managers have a good overview of the progress children make. They ensure children requiring additional support benefit from the help they need. This helps to ensure no child falls behind.
