Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Effective self-evaluation and a commitment from the manager and staff to continuous improvement enable the setting to maintain its good-quality service. The manager and staff monitor children’s progress thoroughly. Staff make accurate assessments of children’s development and plan carefully for the next steps in their learning. For example, following a recent review of assessment information, staff have placed an even stronger focus on supporting children’s mathematical understanding. Staff support children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities skilfully. They work closely with other professionals involved in children’s care to provide tailored learning plans that help to close any identified gaps in children’s development. All children make good progress based on their individual starting points. Staff interactions with children are a strength and children form close bonds with them. Staff are attentive to children and ensure that their care needs are fully met. Staff support children’s good health effectively. Older children learn about dental hygiene and the benefits of making healthy food choices. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff interrupt the flow of children’s learning with some unnecessary waiting, particularly around mealtimes and during some large-group activities. Activities provided for older children to support their play and exploration outdoors are not as rich and varied as those they experience indoors.
