Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Well-qualified staff use the outdoor space well to promote children’s learning, independence and problem-solving skills. Children of all ages enjoy being outdoors in all weathers. The quality of teaching is good. Staff use a range of effective teaching skills to help children make good progress. They know when to step in and support children’s learning and when to let them explore and investigate on their own. Partnerships with parents are effective. Staff provide parents with live updates about their child’s day and keep them well informed about staff changes, planned activities and children’s achievements. Children of all ages are confident and settled. Babies enjoy warm relationships with their key persons and good opportunities to practise their emerging physical skills. Older children capably complete tasks independently, such as laying the table and cutting fruit. Managers and staff work closely with schools and other professionals involved in children’s development. This helps to provide effective support for children who need extra help and ensures all children are ready for the move on to school. It is not yet outstanding because: The youngest children enjoy creative play but sometimes lack opportunities to extend their creativity or to see their artwork. Staff working with children aged two and three years do not promote children’s independent self-care skills as well as possible.
