The learning environment helps children to progress towards the early learning goals. There is a varied range of resources and activities presented for children and furniture is different sizes to account for the different age range cared for. The quality of planning is good and takes account of all the areas of learning. Staff take their time in helping children after school to extend planned activities to continue to promote children’s problem solving, reasoning and mathematical thinking
