“Respectful and sensitive interactions between children and teachers are evident. There is a welcoming atmosphere and purposeful, cooperative play is a feature. A carefully considered and well resourced setting contributes significantly to children’s sense of belonging. Children learn about the natural world and sustainable practices in the interesting and stimulating environment. They actively contribute to caring for their environment..” Education Review Office Comment (2013)
