Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is outstanding The highly effective management team swiftly implements strategies and programmes to support all children, including those whose starting points are lower than expected. Gaps in children’s attainment close rapidly and children achieve at the highest level. Staff consistently carry out meticulous observations and assessments of children, in line with the early years foundation stage, in order to plan detailed next steps. Staff share these efficiently with parents and carers through an effective online system that enables parents to share observations with staff. Partnerships with parents are very strong. Staff have excellent knowledge of how to enhance children’s learning. Staff consistently use extremely engaging and thought-provoking language that encourages babies and children to investigate, explore and problem-solve exceptionally well. Staff demonstrate exceptional care and sensitivity, to enable babies and children to form secure attachments and settle quickly in the setting. This provides a strong foundation for children to develop confidence in their own abilities. Children are extremely considerate of their peers and enjoy sharing in one another’s achievements. Children demonstrate remarkably positive behaviour. They do not become easily distracted, they do not distract others from learning opportunities and furthermore, they actively seek to involve each other in activities. The highly skilled staff place a strong focus on providing opportunities for older children to develop the skills needed to prepare them for future learning.
