Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The provider has processes in place to evaluate the effectiveness of the preschool. She identifies areas of weakness and sets targets for improvement. This helps her continually develop the quality of the provision. The provider has secure vetting and recruitment procedures. For example, she conducts interviews, seeks references, checks for gaps in employment and performs the relevant suitability checks. This helps ensure that staff are suitable for their roles and responsibilities. Children make good progress and engage well in the wide range of activities available. They actively explore and investigate varied stimulating sensory resources, such as cornflour, dough and sea-life toys in water. This helps to keep their motivation and interest in their learning. Parents are very happy with the service the preschool offers. Staff share regular information with them about their children’s progress, which helps them support learning at home. It is not yet outstanding because: The provider monitors staff but these processes are not yet fully embedded to help inform highly focussed supervision to develop staff’s knowledge and skills further. Staff do not consistently use questions to help children to think for themselves and fully extend their learning.
