 Our last inspection at Hardmoor took place on 13 April  2016 and we were delighted to be awarded an 'Outstanding' status. The  inspector said that 'Staff know children exceptionally well. They treat  each child as an individual and consistently give children time and  emotional support to help them manage their own feelings and behaviour'  (report no. 825505)

It is a true testament to our dedicated staff and volunteers.

Our  last inspection at Thornhill took place on 9 May 2016 and we are  delighted to report that we addressed the problems highlighted last year  and we are now rated a 'good' provider. The  inspector stated that 'the management team and staff work hard to  create stimulating activities that support children effectively in their  learning. Children make good progress from their starting points,  particularly in their communication, physical and social development.'
