Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff provide a good range of experiences that enable children to lead their own learning. They interact positively with children and encourage them to enjoy their learning. All children, including those in receipt of additional funding and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, make good progress. • Children form very good relationships with staff. They are encouraged to complete activities for themselves and they freely seek the support of staff. Children are happy, settled and confident. • Parents are very positive about the care their children receive, and comment that, ’It is the most incredible setting and gives children the best start in life’. They are given regular updates about their children’s learning and development. Staff provide comprehensive support for parents to continue their children’s learning at home. • Children’s communication and language skills are well supported. Staff are knowledgeable and use a wide range of strategies to help develop young children’s emerging speaking and language skills. • The organisation of group times means that the older and more able children cannot, sometimes, fully concentrate. • The programme for the professional development of all staff does not focus robustly on raising the quality of teaching to an outstanding level.
