Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good • Children’s behaviour is good. Children of all ages play cooperatively together. They share resources and happily take turns in team games and activities. Younger children are well supported by staff and the older children help them with tasks and show caring attitudes towards them. • The manager has a good knowledge of recruitment and the steps to take in order to check that staff are suitable. She encourages staff to attend regular training courses to extend and develop their skills and knowledge. The staff team work closely together, which helps to provide children with an enjoyable experience. • Partnerships with parents and schools are strong. Staff have a very good relationship with parents, carers and teachers, and share information about the children in their care. This helps them to work in harmony and support children well. • There is a fun and friendly atmosphere in this stimulating and well-equipped environment. A range of resources is accessible to children. Children develop confidence as they are able to make independent choices about what they want to play with. • The manager does not consistently evaluate and assess the effectiveness of improvements made at the setting.
