Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and staff have a good understanding of how children learn. They plan a wide range of stimulating activities and experiences. Children are eager and confident to explore and make good progress from their initial starting points. The manager and staff are good role models for children. They teach children to use good manners and treat one another with respect. Children know to be kind. They share, play well together and listen to each other’s views. Partnerships with parents are good. The manager and staff use a wide range of strategies to engage parents, and share information about children’s achievements. Parents comment that they value the care and learning their children receive. The manager leads her staff team well. She has a clear understanding of staff’s strengths and areas for further development. She has addressed the recommendations set at the last inspection and maintained children’s good outcomes. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, some staff do not allow children enough time to think about and share their own ideas and experiences. The manager does not make the best use of information gained through ongoing tracking of the progress that groups of children make to precisely target teaching and ensure any gaps in learning are closing.
