Harrington Nursery sparkles because we have developed safe, effective and sustainable early years practice which meets the needs of the children and families we work with.

We sparkle because we have a staff team that works well together, sharing and using expertise and being committed to developing professionalism through CPD.

We sparkle because we use a range of techniques to collect information about how effective our practice is, so that we are constantly monitoring the quality of the provision and the children's progress and wellbeing, and making adjustments where necessary.


We sparkle because the cycles of development are robust and accurate indicating how well we are doing and what we need to do to get better.
