Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are happy and confident. They settle well and enjoy their time at the club. Staff are kind to children and are good role models for them. Parents value the club. They appreciate the warm and respectful relationships that staff have with children and the positive relationships amongst children. The club is well resourced. Children enjoy a wide range of age appropriate activities. For example, they enthusiastically join in active games and participate in quieter activities. They improve their fitness levels and learn to work together. Staff provide healthy snacks and help children understand the benefits of healthy eating and exercise. They run a cookery club where children learn to prepare healthy meals. The management team ensures staff receive relevant professional development opportunities. For example, all staff hold a paediatric first aid certificate. It is not yet outstanding because: At times staff get involved too quickly in children’s play and do not give children sufficient time to work out problems for themselves. Occasionally children are not sufficiently supported and challenged by staff and they lose interest in an activity.
