Information about the setting
ABC Pre-School was re-registered in 2013 on the Early Years Register. It is situated in Irchester, Northamptonshire and is privately owned. The pre-school serves the local area and is accessible to all children. It operates from rooms within the village hall and there is an enclosed area available for outdoor play. The pre-school employs nine members of childcare staff, all of whom hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 2 and above, including one with Qualified Teacher Status and one with Early Years Professional status. The pre-school is open on Mondays from 8.50am to 11.50am, and Tuesday to Friday from 8.50am to 11.50am and from 12.20pm to 3.20pm, with the option of a lunch club for pre-school children. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently 89 children on roll who are in the early years age group. The pre-school provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-olds. It supports children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: enhance the already excellent outdoor displays to include even more opportunities for children to maximise their mathematical skills.
