Requires Improvement



 'The Playhouse' at Beckie' was inspected in December 2009, I was very pleased with the way it went and some of the comments were great.


"They are cared for in a welcoming family home, and play in an enabling environment, where they are very settled and content."

"Good emphasis is given to ensuring that every child is valued as an individual and their family members are actively involved."

"Children freely and safely choose toys that appeal to their interests, and initiate their own learning."

"They (The children) enjoy warm relationships with the childminder who is very attentive, encouraging children to play with the toys and motivating their conversation and learning........"
