“Staff have high expectations of children’s achievements.  They skilfully know when to allow children to try things for themselves and when to step in to offer support and guidance.  All children are keen to join in with the enjoyable and challenging activities. 
Children are supported well to develop a growing awareness of how to keep themselves healthy and manage reasonable risks.  Staff provide them with rich opportunities to gain practical skills.
Staff take time to find out about children’s specific needs and often draw on the expertise of parents and outside professionals.  In particular, this helps them to offer carefully tailored support to meet the needs of children with special educational needs and /or disabilities” – Ofsted Inspector
“As soon as I walked into ABC I knew that it was where I wanted my son to come to pre-school. The staff are so friendly and engaged with the children. I just love the commitment of everyone at ABC and I couldn’t be happier with my choice. I know they have my child’s best interests at heart.” – EC, Parent

“The children from ABC generally arrive in Reception with confidence and independence. They demonstrate a love of learning, the ability to persevere and solve problems and show good mathematical understanding. They have formed good friendships and show kindness and concern for the people around them.” – Mrs Ranson, Britannia Primary School Teacher
