Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are very confident and self-assured. Staff make thoughtful arrangements to help children to settle in and move between rooms seamlessly. For example, key staff take children to visit their new room to provide emotional support. The environments are planned and designed well. There are a broad range of activities, and resources are attractively displayed to ignite children’s curiosity. Children are resourceful and eagerly explore their surroundings and follow their own interests. The well-qualified staff teach well, overall. They skilfully help children to overcome challenges and solve problems independently. For example, they encourage children to think logically about how to join the pieces of the train track together to form a circle. Staff work closely with parents and exchange relevant information with them to promote children’s learning at home and in the setting. Strong links are established with local schools. Staff provide teachers with important information about children’s learning and invite them to visit children in the setting. This helps to promote continuity of children’s care and learning well. It is not yet outstanding because: The current arrangements to train and coach staff are not sharply focused on supporting them to develop their teaching skills to an even higher level. The manager does not yet monitor information about the progress of different groups of children to help her to fully evaluate the effectiveness of teaching.
