Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Teaching is consistently strong and children are active and enthusiastic learners. They are well prepared for their next stages in learning and for school. Staff use a variety of ways to promote children’s language and communication skills effectively. They know children well and plan experiences that provide interest and challenge so that all children are enthusiastic and motivated to learn. Children develop a growing understanding of how to keep themselves safe, for example, they learn about road safety when out and about. They make friends easily and settle well. Staff have a robust understanding of their role in safeguarding children. The manager provides focused supervision and ongoing training to promote staff professional development so that staff are regularly improving their knowledge and practice. It is not yet outstanding because: Children are not always provided with a rich, varied and imaginative environment in the outdoors area to support their play and learning and develop their natural curiosity in living things. Staff do not use highly effective strategies to work with parents to support children’s growing understanding of healthy eating.
