Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Members of the management team have good systems in place to identify children who may be eligible for additional funding. They make effective use of the funding to support individual and groups of children to make progress in their learning and development. For example, they buy resources relating to individual children’s interests so that children will benefit. • Staff work well to create a stimulating learning environment. For instance, they arrange resources so these are fully accessible to children and allow them to follow their interests. They support children to confidently make choices in their play. • Parents are very complimentary about the setting and comment particularly on how much their children enjoy attending. • Children show good levels of independence. For example, they put on their own clothes, wash their hands and pour their own drinks. When young children ask staff to put their jackets or wellies on for them, staff encourage them to have a go first. • Staff are nurturing towards the children and build good relationships with them. Children approach staff to tell them about their achievements and when they require comfort. • The management team does not consistently monitor staff assessments of what all children can already do. • Parents are not consistently provided with information that will support them to progress their children’s learning at home. For example, information about what parents can do to support individual children’s next steps.
