We are really proud to announce we have achieved the accreditation. This has been a long journey which has been very eye opening in what we do and how we do it. It has really encouraged us to look at the children’s learning and interests bringing in resources not only to enhance their learning but to move them forward developing well rounded children. This helps them to move forward to their next stage of learning and we hope will support them in being fabulous members of our community.

Jackie and Kathryn and their staff have worked really hard to gain the accreditation. Firstly, I would like to thank them for their patience, and for providing me with lots of extra evidence and in answering my questions. They have been real stars.
There are a lot of things they can not change due to them being in a football club. They have worked with the setting to the best of their abilities.
They provide some wonderful provocations to learn and fully understand The Curiosity Approach.
They provide lots of loose parts and authentic materials.
I particularly like the apple trees they have grown in pots at the setting. They are going to take them to a local orchard that has been set up near them. This is an area that they are going to use for forest schools.
One of my favourite sentences from their submission was “We have discovered that things do not have to be beautiful to be interesting “
I would like to wish them every success for the future”.
