Our setting has an open-plan layout and has a lot of natural light, which is enjoyed by the children, and creates a home from home feel. Greenshoots were praised by Ofsted in April 2019, and received an OUTSTANDING rating. We believe young children learn best through activities that are fun and enjoyable. We take pride in getting to know each child to harness their interests and to cater for their individual learning needs. We have a team of highly trained staff who work closely with parents/carers to ensure their child receives the best possible care and early years education. In our most recent inspection report, Ofsted commended Greenshoots for the ‘good rapport built with families’. Ofsted also praised how ‘children develop good literacy skills because staff expertly teach them to identify letter sounds’.
