Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Leadership is strong. The setting is successfully supported by a team of dedicated and long-standing committee members. The appointment of a new and very experienced manager has added to the effective leadership. Children are provided with a stimulating and exciting range of learning experiences indoors and outdoors. Planning is effectively tailored to match individual children’s learning needs. Key persons know children in their key groups well. They follow their progress through clear and frequent observations and record these in well-presented learning journals. Parents are very complimentary of the setting and comment on the friendliness of the practitioners. New parents state that the settling-in procedures are effective and that their children are always greeted affectionately. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, practitioners do not pay enough attention to ensuring that adult-led activities and interactions are matched to individual children’s needs. The new manager has not yet embedded her systems for monitoring the progress that groups of children make to enable her to target interventions where required.
