Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Children’s physical development is well promoted. They enjoy many opportunities to develop active skills, such as climbing and scooting. Children develop their hand-to-eye coordination in a variety of ways. For example, they concentrate as they play fishing games, roll dough and complete jigsaw puzzles. • Children enjoy their time at pre-school. Effective settling-in systems support children who are new to the setting to settle quickly. • Parents comment favourably how happy children are and how staff help to build children’s confidence. • Staff have benefitted from behaviour management training. They are good role models and regularly remind children of the expected behaviours. Children behave very well. They take turns, share and help one another. They are kind to their friends and demonstrate friendly behaviour. • The manager actively seeks and uses feedback from children, parents and staff to help evaluate the provision. She uses this information effectively to drive further improvements. For example, staff regularly evaluate activities afterwards to see how they can further improve the experiences and outcomes for children. • At times, staff do not allow sufficient time when asking children questions to allow them to answer. • There are missed opportunities to teach children about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and to develop a positive attitude to healthy eating.
