Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children and babies have strong relationships with their key person. They are excited to see them on their arrival and settle quickly. Children are happy, secure and behave well, which underpins their learning and development effectively. The manager uses self-evaluation successfully, seeking staff and parents’ views to accurately identify strengths and areas for development. For example, the manager and staff have reviewed the organisation of the environment to optimise the use of the indoor space to meet children’s individual needs effectively. They are now developing easier access to the outdoors. Staff provide good support for children’s language and communication skills. For instance, they ask older children thought-provoking questions and help them to recall past events. They extend toddlers’ vocabulary. All children make good progress from their starting points. Staff share good information with parents, other providers and outside agencies to be consistent in supporting children’s learning. They make regular observations of children’s achievements and use them well to plan challenging activities. Staff use all opportunities to help children to become independent, such as helping toddlers to find their own belongings and older children to prepare their snack. They support children well in persevering and finding alternative ways to complete a task. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always organise group activities in the pre-school room to involve and challenge younger children as effectively as the oldest children.
