In the report summary, Ofsted inspector Jamie Smith wrote: ‘Children feel safe and secure. They have good relationships with the staff and make positive friendships with their peers. Staff are attentive to children's needs and know how to comfort them effectively. This helps children to settle well at the nursery.’
