Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The ambitious management team is committed to providing high standards of care and learning for all children who attend. The enthusiastic staff team successfully builds good working partnerships with parents and professionals to ensure every family feels included, valued and well supported. Staff plan a good variety of interesting and challenging activities that covers all areas of learning. They address any gaps in children’s learning swiftly to enable all children to make good progress from their individual starting points. Children are eager to participate in all that is on offer. At times, they lead their own play but also participate in well-planned adult-led activities. Staff encourage all the necessary skills to enable children to feel confident in the next stage of their education. Staff provide good levels of care and support to each child and get to know them well. Children feel safe, happy and confident. Behaviour is good. Regular training opportunities enable the staff to continue to build their knowledge and skills, particularly with regard to communication and language development. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not sufficiently explore alternative ways to gain more in-depth information from all parents about their children’s learning and achievements at home. Although the setting has resources that reflect the diversity of those who attend, these are not easily visible for the children to see, hear or use.
