Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Leaders, managers and staff use observations and assessments effectively to plan activities and experiences that support children’s learning successfully. Children make good progress from when they start in the pre-school, in preparation for their next steps in learning and for school. Children are confident, well-motivated and engage positively in their play and learning. They enjoy exploring the stimulating environment and they develop a range of important skills for their future lives. Staff support children’s personal development effectively. Children show a high level of understanding of positive behaviour and they play cooperatively with their friends. Leaders and managers support staff well to develop the quality of their teaching and improve outcomes for children. They use self-evaluation and monitoring procedures effectively to identify and address areas for further improvement. Leaders, managers and staff ensure that children are safe and supervised closely. They have a good understanding of safeguarding procedures to help keep children safe. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff do not extend learning fully when children explore new ideas for themselves. Staff do not provide the best opportunities for children to practise skills to support their understanding of technology.
