Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has a clear understanding of her role and responsibilities and has high expectations of staff. She supervises staff closely to help them continually improve on their practice and promote good standards of care and learning. The manager ensures that staff access regular training. For example, staff use information gained from recent training in mathematics and autism very well. They reflect on their practice and make changes to help improve outcomes for all children. Children are involved in a wide variety of outings that staff plan regularly. This includes, for example, visits to the cinema, library, nature reserve, beach and farm. This also helps children to learn about diversity and people in the community. Staff support children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities particularly well. Partnerships with parents, other settings and professionals are strong. Staff exchange information regularly between all parties to ensure that there is a shared approach to promoting all children’s learning. Children enjoy the variety of activities that staff provides. They are independent and confident learners who all make good progress from the start of their placement. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, some staff do not make the best use of opportunities to encourage younger children to develop their good thinking and speaking skills further. Occasionally, lunchtime routines in the toddler room are not organised as well as they could be. Some children become distracted and disengaged.
