Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are comfortable and confident with staff and their friends. They form secure, emotional attachments with them and each other. Staff swiftly identify where children need additional support. They work closely with other professionals and effectively follow their guidance to support children who have special educational needs or those who speak English as an additional language. This supports children to make continual progress in their development. Staff are deployed well and work effectively together as a team. They share ideas and support each other throughout the session, to enable them to meet children’s individual needs. Children’s behaviour is managed well. Staff make sure that they know children’s interests, backgrounds and individual needs to help them provide the support they need. Staff support children to make good progress. Children develop a range of skills, such as social skills and an awareness of mathematical ideas. This helps to prepare them for the next stage in their learning. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently provide a wide range of exciting experiences, particularly for those children who enjoy playing and learning outdoors. On occasion, staff help children with simple tasks that they could learn to carry out for themselves.
