This provision is outstanding The managers and staff are extremely passionate and fully committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for children. They have a great enthusiasm for continuous improvement and strive to achieve outstanding practice. Staff provide an innovative range of exciting and stimulating resources indoors and outdoors that excites and inspires children to learn. For instance, children independently access a range of interesting and beautiful everyday objects which they use creatively to lead their own investigations and make discoveries. Staff have excellent teaching skills and provide a rich programme of learning opportunities that are precisely tailored to individual children’s needs and interests. They provide exceptional support for children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, such as through carefully planned small-group sessions that address specific gaps in children’s learning. The managers monitor children’s progress meticulously and swiftly provide additional challenge or support. All children, including those who have SEN and/or disabilities and those who receive additional funding, make excellent progress. Staff build highly successful links with parents to keep them very well informed of their children’s progress. They give parents excellent support to continue children’s progress at home. This contributes well to children’s outstanding progress in all areas of their development and their all-round well-being.
