Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Staff observe children carefully, listen to them respectfully and know precisely what they do and do not understand. For example, babies’ first words include ’deer’, ’tractor’ and ’puppy’. They reflect the abundant and rich experiences staff provide and use to inspire children’s wonder and fascination with the world around them. • Excellent partnerships with parents promote children’s learning further. For example, parents understand why children notice that a dog ’only has two body parts’, because : they know the children have been learning that insects have three. • Staff teaching the older age groups challenge children to even higher levels of observation and study. For instance, children find a dead bee and examine it under a digital microscope. They spot pollen and examine the stinger carefully. They amend their fine drawings to add a further set of wings and the circular patterns on them. • The leadership team adapts its extensive knowledge of children’s online learning to guide staff, parents and children. Everyone develops the ethos and practical skills to help children stay safe as they take full advantage of new technology. • Staff show children how to marvel at the tiniest details in life. This is evident as children examine the progress of seeds they incubate, vegetables they grow and caterpillars that turn into butterflies. They confidently experiment with very different materials, such as clay, charcoal and colour mixing, to represent their observations. • Leaders moderate and monitor staff assessments of children’s progress across all aspects of their learning. They check that different groups of children achieve to their ability and gently challenge them further. Children who need additional help receive it promptly. Children of all ages make rapid levels of progress and are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their learning.
