Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Children flourish during their time at this small and friendly pre-school. They make rapid progress from their individual starting points. Children show very high levels of motivation and are eager to join in with the wealth of activities provided. Older children are extremely well prepared for their imminent move on to school. The manager provides strong leadership for staff. She uses knowledge gained from her teaching qualification to role model highly effective teaching strategies. Staff thoroughly understand how children learn and have very high expectations of what each child can achieve. Additional funding is spent very well to help all children thrive. Children’s behaviour is excellent. They listen perceptively to adults as they talk through the rules and routines of the day. Children are keen to help, praise their friends and tell visitors how, ’Sharing is caring’, as they play harmoniously with their friends. Literacy and mathematics are taught extremely well. For instance, children show very high levels of understanding for their ages as they join in with games to learn letter sounds. They show much enthusiasm for these games as they ask to play again. Parents are keen to praise the many strengths of the pre-school. They say how they are, ’Very impressed’ with the staff and feel their children are, ’Loved and cared for’ during their time there. At the end of each session, staff give parents detailed information about children’s learning and ideas for them to continue to help their child at home.
