Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good • The manager and her staff involve parents in their children’s learning. For example, children are excited to complete weekly ’homework’ activities with their parents. This means parents can contribute to their children’s development and next steps. • The manager is a strong leader. She shares her knowledge with her staff to ensure safeguarding is robust. Therefore, any concerns are quickly identified and referred to appropriate outside agencies. This means children are well protected. • Staff have high expectations for all children. They skilfully extend children’s learning opportunities. For example, children delight in matching farm animals with pictures in a book. They point out similarities and differences. This helps to build their understanding of the world. • Children enjoy learning self-care skills. They ask to wash their hands before eating and after playing in sand. Children embrace the focus on independence. They smile as they successfully find their own seats and coat pegs, and pour their own drinks. This helps to prepare them for the transition to school. • Staff promote mathematical development during children’s play. For example, when exploring with transport toys, children count out loud to 10. Staff support children to find patterns, colours and shapes on the wings of the airplanes. • The manager has a robust system for supervision. She regularly monitors her staff, and sources targeted training. For example, staff have recently completed training on outdoor learning. This ensures teaching is consistently good. • Children learn new words rapidly. They repeat after staff when exploring the water tray, delighted to practise words like ’octopus’ and ’dolphin’. However, staff do not always use the correct names for animals. This can cause confusion as children build their vocabulary.
