Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Parents are very happy to share their positive experiences of the playgroup. Parents appreciate the warm and friendly staff and the communication about their children’s day. They value how staff share practical tips and approaches, which they use to strengthen children’s learning at home. • Staff know children well and help them to develop a positive sense of themselves. Staff encourage children to initiate their own play and follow their interests. Children are absorbed in their play and learning, relishing opportunities to experiment and use a variety of resources. This contributes to the good rates of progress children make, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). • Children access daily outdoor play and learning. This helps them to develop their physical skills and gain knowledge about how to keep safe. The manager has planned the outdoor environment in ways that develop children’s early literacy and mathematical skills. • The manager fosters a strongly inclusive culture. Children learn to respect themselves and others who may have different abilities and who are from different cultures and faiths. • The manager is aware of the need for more focused development of teaching practice. • While assessment is effective and parents have a good understanding of their children’s progress and next steps, processes for sharing detailed assessment information with parents are not routine. • Staff monitor children’s individual progress, but do not routinely check the progress of different groups of children or cohorts.
