What do Ofsted think?
Children are warmly welcomed into the playgroup and they settle quickly at activities. Children are prepared well for school because staff encourage their independence. For example, they pour and serve their own drinks and snacks and get ready for outside play. Children make independent choices from a range of healthy fruit options.
