CHILDREN at Bury Playgroup are provided with good communication skills, are encouraged to use their imagination, and are happy and content with the group's environment.
According to the latest inspection by Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, children also develop creative skills as they paint and explore music through planned activities.
Staff at the playgroup, which caters for children between two and five years old, also encourage learning through the use of mathematical games on a computer, and give the children plenty of opportunity to play outdoors in the fresh air.
Inspectors also found that children learn about healthy eating because of topic work, such as "five a day", and they are provided with nutritious snacks such as fruit and vegetables.
