Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has taken prompt action to address weaknesses raised at the last inspection. The manager and staff have reviewed and updated their knowledge of the pre-school’s policies and procedures to ensure they keep children safe. The manager effectively monitors the provision and the progress children make. She knows where practice is strong and which aspects she would like to develop further. She puts appropriate plans in place to secure continued improvements. Staff know the children well. They know what interests children. They complete regular assessments of their development. Children engage well in a wide range of learning opportunities throughout the day. They are motivated and eager to learn. Staff work effectively in partnership with parents. They keep parents updated about children’s progress. Staff seek parents’ views about children’s development and work together with them to support children’s learning in the pre-school and at home. Children behave well. They develop good friendships and welcome others into their play. They abide by the clear and consistent rules and boundaries that staff discuss with them. Children build secure attachments to staff and enjoy playing alongside them. It is not yet outstanding because: Some staff lack the confidence to reflect on each other’s practice and to share skills to support all staff’s professional development. Staff sometimes miss opportunities to provide additional and higher levels of challenge to the most able children to help them to make faster rates of progress.
