Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and staff know the children well. They provide a good range of activities and resources that challenges and interests children effectively. This helps all children to make good progress in their learning from their starting points The manager and staff are good role models for children. They build children’s confidence as they settle. For example, they make good use of praise and explain boundaries. Children play cooperatively together, learn to take turns and are kind to each other. Partnerships with parents are very successful. The manager and staff use a wide variety of strategies to engage parents, and share ideas to support their children’s learning at home. Parents talk about how much their children look forward to attending. The manager carries out regular and effective self-evaluation that significantly influences plans that help maintain good outcomes for children. For example, the manager has addressed the recommendations very successfully from the last inspection. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not use every opportunity to help children fully develop all aspects of early mathematical skills and vocabulary during their play. Occasionally, staff miss opportunities to provide children with tasks to develop their independence further.
