Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has high expectations of staff. She uses an effective programme of recruitment and supervision to ensure staff maintain good standards of care. Well-qualified staff are friendly, professional and organised. Staff place a high priority on partnership with parents and recognise the additional support that some parents, who speak English as an additional language, may need. Newsletters keep parents informed of events such as a visit to the park. Children play with a wide range of resources that supports all areas of learning. They particularly enjoy reading books, singing songs and painting. Staff plan regular outings that help children learn about their local community. Children behave very well. They understand and follow the rules set by staff. For example, they quietly wait in line when waiting to wash their hands and keenly join in to tidy away the toys. Staff regularly assess risks and help children to identify hazards for themselves. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not use every opportunity to provide children with higher levels of challenge to support their thinking and problem-solving skills further.
