  • Is in a safe and stimulating environment.
  • Is given generous care and attention, because of our ratio of qualified staff to children, as well as volunteer parent helpers.
  • Has the chance to join in with other children and adults to play and learn together.
  • Is helped to take forward their learning and development by being helped to build on what they already know and can do.
  • Has a personal key worker who makes sure each child makes satisfactory progress to the best of their individual needs.
  • Is in a setting that sees parents as partners in helping each child to learn and develop.
  • Is in a setting where parents shape the service we offer.
