Little Owls Firthfields has a “Good” Ofsted rating
At Firthfields we have an outdoor learning environment that the children are encouraged to use throughout the day. This includes a mud kitchen, which provides many role play opportunities as well as sensory experiences. Other areas of the curriculum are provided outdoors such as sand, water, and mark making alongside climbing opportunities and large vehicles.
Practitioners have a strong commitment to working in partnership with parents, which effectively contributes to children’s care, learning and development.

At Firthfields Little Owls all the children, practitioners and visitors will be treated fairly, with equal respect and empathy as people are all individuals and have different needs. Practitioners will work towards preparing children for an inclusive society, celebrating diversity of heritage and uniqueness of each individual, adapting a flexible approach to meet their needs; and work with people from the local community.
Children that attend the centre who have special educational needs are supported by the SENCO and external professionals. Individual support plans are implemented and regular meetings are held with parents, and all the professionals working with the child. Training is implemented to support all practitioners, particularly the child’s key person. This is to make sure we provide the best learning opportunities for the child, so they have the opportunity to reach their full potential in all aspects of learning.
Here is what Ofsted says about us:
“Staff have a strong focus on inspiring children to lead healthy lifestyles. Older children dig for carrots in the planting pots. Staff help the children to identify the carrot leaves by discussing the shapes and colours that distinguish them from other plants.” – Ofsted
“Children make good and occasionally rapid progress from their starting points. They are developing the skills required for school.” – Ofsted
