Staff engage children in many conversations and children excitedly talk about what they are doing. They select from an excellent range of creative media as they make sheep, inspired by a recent outing to the farm. They discuss how sheep keep warm by wearing a woolly coat, what they eat and how they live together in a flock. Children giggle when staff ask them if sheep lay eggs - 'No, ducks lay eggs' comes their reply. This demonstrates that children feel totally comfortable in the care of the staff

Ofsted Report 2011

Children's behaviour is exemplary, and they demonstrate excellent social skills of sharing and taking turns. Furthermore, children's emotional well-being is truly fostered. On arrival at the setting, the children choose 'feelings clips' as they self-register to let the staff know how they are feeling. Staff discuss with the children about why, for example, they are happy or sad.
