What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is good Children and parents are greeted warmly by staff as they arrive at the setting. Children separate happily from parents and information is shared between parents and staff about each child. Children take off their coats and soon settle at their chosen activities. Children develop positive attitudes to learning and have strong relationships with staff who know them well. They choose from a range of stimulating resources. Children enjoy playing with staff in all areas of the playgroup. For example, they sit on the floor and play with vehicles or pretend to make dinner in the role play area. Older children construct with plastic bricks next to their key person for a significant amount of time. Children are independent learners who are encouraged to make decisions for themselves. Older children put on their own coat to go outside, pour their own drinks and choose what they would like from a selection of nutritious items at snack time. This helps them to develop their self-care skills. Children enjoy spending time outside at this playgroup. They develop their physical strength in a variety of ways as they swing, run freely and push their friends along in wheeled toys. They squeal with excitement as the wolf chases them in a game of ‘What’s the time, Mr Wolf?’
