YET ANOTHER OUSTANDING OFSTED REPORT IN ALL AREAS! - July 2019 (Read the full report in News Items)

The Ofsted Inspector said: ' The enthusiastic manager and staff team provide a holistic family approach to high quality learning experiences in a welcoming, safe and secure environment. Staff are well informed and knowledgeable educators.
Children demonstrate exemplary behaviour and excellent social skills. All staff give children consistent messages about their expectations for behaviour. This helps children to understand rules and boundaries, and how to keep themselves and others safe...'

Kent County Council Early Years Improvement Adviser said:
'The children were purposeful and extremely engaged in their learning. High levels of independence were clearly in evidence and the children's personal and social skills highly developed. Resources are well organised and frequently refreshed to reflect the children's interests. High quality interactions were observed by staff and every opportunity to extend children's thinking was being taken. Children were keen to engage with each other and adults to share their learning. Routines both inside and out were well established and the children show great pride in their environment'

''..." Visited the Pre-School today for the first time and was absolutely overwhelmed by the staff, atmosphere, activities and how calm and peaceful it was for a Pre-School. All children looked engaged in what they were doing and very happy. Wonderful place" Parent (2024)
