Children's behaviour is described by the inspector as 'remarkable' and that youngsters 'are highly engaged and eager to explore and solve problems'.

The manager was said to be 'dedicated to providing children and their families with the best possible service, care and learning opportunities' and that she provided continuous support to the staff.

Ms Lever said: "Children's early communication and language development is a key strength at the nursery and nothing short of exceptional."

She added: "All children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), are becoming confident communicators.

"There is an inspirational team of SEND coordinators. They work with a wide range of other professionals, staff and parents to ensure that the children receive the additional support that they need."

Partnerships with parents were described as outstanding with plenty of opportunities for them to be involved in their children's learning.

The inspector stated: "Meetings take place with parents before their children start attending.

These meetings cover the importance of two-way communication and their children's care and development. Parents express their gratitude and appreciation for the support given, not only to their children but to them."
