Ofsted 2015 - "Good" - 'All children are progressing well in their learning and development. They are developing independence and have many opportunities to make choices and decisions in their play and learning. They are well prepared for their next stages in learning and for transitions on to school.' 

'Children are extremely happy and content in this very friendly and welcoming pre-school.  They are confident and independent as they choose where and what they play with. Staff consistently model positive behaviour and, as a result, children behave well, show respect for others and play harmoniously together. Children learn to keep themselves safe and healthy. Staff help to prepare children well for their move on to school. Children enjoy daily outdoor play in all weathers and attend events within the local community, such as visits to the fire station and the primary school's harvest festival.'
