Burley Gate pre-school’s Early Years Provision was given a ‘good’ rating under the new Early Years Framework introduced in September 2012.

“Children are progressing well because they are provided with exciting activities and play which cover all areas of learning.

Children are happy, confident, independent and well cared for because they have formed strong relationships with staff.

Children enjoy daily outdoor play in a well-resourced and stimulating environment; this supports their all-round development.

Children gain confidence in using language because they share conversations with staff as they play.

Children are safeguarded because all staff are well informed and have a secure knowledge and understanding of the roles and responsibilities for child protection.”
