At this nursery it is essential that the practitioners, parents and children aim high. Next steps will be set for children to ensure they are making the best progress.

It is essential that children are kept safe and secure when they are in the nursery and when they are at home. The nursery has many policies that are in place to allow children to have fun but also to remain safe. Risk assessments are kept in order to reduce the number of accidents that take place, and parents are informed if something unfortunate does happen
