The provision is outstanding in meeting the needs of the children who attend. Enthusiastic adults motivate and engage children, often participating in their play to encourage critical thinking, the use of mathematical skills and language development. Imaginative outdoor spaces, including a woodland area, create a rich learning environment where children can play and explore.
The overall quality and standards of the provision are outstanding. Children, including those with SEND and EAL, make excellent progress.
Children are extremely happy, well behaved, courteous and friendly, and feel secure. Provision for the children's well-being is outstanding. Adults work closely with parents, helping children, particularly those under three, to settle quickly and form secure emotional attachments with key people. As a result, children are happy and enjoy their time in the setting
May I take this opportunity to express my feelings regarding Oakwood Nursery.
Words cannot describe how happy we are and Bob is at Oakwood Nursery. He absolutely loves it, so much so that this morning on our walk to nursery he said 'Mummy I am so excited'. It just melts my heart to hear such lovely reassuring words coming from my little boy.
Mrs Blair is a wonderful lady, so nurturing and caring which is just what our 'little ones' and 'mums' need at this sensitive time. After looking after Bob myself for nearly 3 years I was very anxious about sending him to nursery school but Mrs Blair and her colleagues have made this transition so easy for me and I thank them for this.
I am so happy that Bob is having such a wonderful start to his school life amongst his new friends and fantastic teacher
