  • "Staff plan fun and enjoyable activities that help to progress children's learning and development.
  • "Staff work closely with parents to gather their views."
  • "Staff nurture children's personal, social and emotional development well. They find out about children's interests and use these to help them settle in."
  • "The provider monitors staff practice well... [they] review the training they feel they would all benefit from."
