“ Yes ADO has contributed positively to C's learning in that she has gained in confidence, developed relationships with unfamiliar adults and managed to separate from me. ADO is a place where she feels safe and that has helped her to develop new skills and confidence. ”




" A & B were impressing us with their knowledge of plants like “artichokes”, fennel, berries in thickets and hedgerows and the fact' you can eat some flowers'.

 What a fabulous educational establishment our boys were so lucky to be able to go to!"
