Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is outstanding The pursuit of excellence and uncompromising ambition towards improvement are very evident. The provider has taken extremely positive action since the last inspection. She has completely tightened up on the recruitment processes and safeguarding knowledge to ensure children are protected as much as possible. Innovative teaching, coupled with highly skilled and knowledgeable staff, reaps benefits for the children. Children are deeply engrossed in their highly motivating, child-led play and make excellent progress. Exceptional emphasis on the great outdoors and meticulous activities planned by staff contributes highly to children’s enjoyment. For example, children learn to take managed risks as they design, build and climb on a home-made den in the field. The care of babies is excellent. Staff have a very secure understanding of their role as key person and they nurture secure and loving relationships with children under two years of age. The staff work diligently to build extremely strong and communicative relationships with parents. They establish an extremely strong and joint approach to children’s care and learning. For example, parents are invited in to share their hobbies and culture with the children.
