Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The provider and staff present an inclusive environment for all children and parents. They work in partnership with other professionals, such as physiotherapists, to help support children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. All children make good individual progress from their starting points. Staff are deployed effectively, ratio requirements are met and children are supervised well at all times. The indoor and outdoor environment are safe and secure for all children. Children’s continuity of learning is supported well. For example, staff organise parents’ evenings to discuss children’s progress and welcome news about children’s achievements at home. They share good information with parents and encourage them to be involved in their child’s learning. Staff acknowledge children’s home culture well. Children gain positive attitudes to others as they learn about the lives of people that are familiar to them. Children have good opportunities to practise their physical skills and get plenty of fresh air. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasions, staff do not fully successfully motivate toddlers to extend their learning when they are involved in activities with children of different ages and abilities. At times, planning is not always as sharply focused as possible to ensure that children are challenged in their learning.
