Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The management team is knowledgeable and committed to developing the pre-school. They consult with staff regularly and implement improvement plans. • Staff plan stimulating and interesting activities that support children’s learning. For instance, they plan activities that support children’s understanding of growth, such as planting bulbs. This encourages children to talk about and explore the changes in the bulbs and what they require to grow. • Children’s behaviour is good. They know what is expected of them and follow the rules of the pre-school. For instance, they form orderly queues to walk to the bathroom and respond well to staff. • Children’s physical development is promoted well. Staff encourage children to take part in physical activities that support their coordination and strengthen their hand muscles. There are opportunities for independent mark making throughout the pre-school. • Staff support children’s early communication skills well. They engage children in meaningful conversation and introduce new words to extend children’s vocabulary. • Children come into pre-school happily and are greeted warmly by staff. This helps them to settle quickly and they are keen to participate in activities. Children freely explore and lead their own learning during activities. • The views of parents are not always fully considered to help further develop and improve the pre-school. • The methods to engage all parents in their children’s learning at home are not fully developed.
