Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The managers and staff have a good understanding of how children learn, and provide a welcoming, calm, well-resourced and stimulating learning environment. Children make strong progress from their initial starting points. Staff develop good partnerships with parents, other professionals and early years settings that children attend. They work together closely to meet children’s care, learning and developmental needs. The manager and staff provide a wide range of activities that children are eager and confident to explore. Children are enthusiastic to play and learn indoors and outdoors. Children behave well. Staff interact and manage their behaviour positively, meeting children’s emotional needs well. Children respond well to guidance, have responsibility for individual tasks and show high levels of self-esteem. Staff have a good knowledge of how to safeguard children. They are confident about the procedures to follow if they have concerns about a child’s welfare. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, the staff’s observations and planning for children’s future learning are not as precise as they could be, to build on their next steps more concisely. The manager does not seek more detailed views from parents about the provision, to focus self-evaluation more precisely on promoting the best possible outcomes for children.
