Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The partnerships between parents and staff effectively support children’s emotional well-being and promotes their good progress. Parents say their children enjoy coming to pre-school very much. Staff keep parents well informed about all aspects of their children’s life at pre-school. • Staff have caring relationships with children. They know the children well and have a thorough understanding of their individual interests and learning needs. This helps them to plan activities that successfully engage children’s attention. • Staff manage children’s behaviour well. They act as positive role models and help children to develop their understanding of the importance of kindness and good manners. • Managers and staff have a good understanding of their responsibilities to provide children with a safe environment. Staff deploy themselves well to maintain children’s safety. They routinely update their already sound knowledge of safeguarding procedures. • Staff have not thought creatively about how they can enhance the routines of the day to offer children more opportunities to lead their own learning and make the most of their time at pre-school. • Although staff attend mandatory training there is less emphasis on identifying professional development that helps staff to raise teaching skills to the highest level.
