Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager is committed to, and passionate about, providing good quality care and education for children. She regularly seeks the views of staff, children and parents. This information is used to make ongoing improvements to the quality of all areas of the provision. Staff carry out regular checks and keep the premises safe and secure. Children are well supervised and are provided with opportunities to develop an awareness of how to stay safe. Gentle, age-appropriate reminders from staff help children to understand how to use equipment in appropriate ways. Children make choices about what they would like to play with in the well-resourced environments, both indoors and outside. Children are keen to invite staff to join them in their play and show a strong sense of belonging. Staff are positive role models. They consistently promote the use of good manners and appropriate behaviour. Staff offer praise and encouragement which help to develop children’s confidence and self-esteem. The pre-school has good relationships with local schools. Information is shared effectively to help support children’s continuing needs and to aid children in the move on to school. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always organise daily routines and group teaching sessions well enough to make sure that all children are highly engaged and able to fully concentrate. On occasion, some staff do not give children enough time to think and respond to questions.
