We cater for all of our children's needs and interests through careful observation and planning. We carefully tune into our children and cater for their needs through specific activities and taking into account their immediate environments. 
As a setting, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (2017) and focus in on their 7 areas of learning.

"Nearly every morning my child says 'Can I go to Holwell today?'. She is 2 and attends 2 sessions a week. My child has grown in confidence, developed her social communication skills and learnt to negotiate! What more could I ask for?
