Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Staff form close and supportive partnerships with parents, who praise staff for the care and attention they give their children. Parents become actively involved in their children’s learning. They have good opportunities to share information about their children’s daily experiences with staff. • Children have confident and affectionate relationships with staff. They settle quickly to their activities, have fun and show a good sense of belonging. • Staff provide a good focus on developing children’s communication skills. They engage well with all children, provide interesting story times, and make the most of small-group times to encourage older children to talk to each other. • The qualified and experienced staff work well as a cohesive team and have a good understanding of their responsibilities. They deploy themselves effectively to supervise children during their play and provide them with the support they need. • Managers and staff have an in-depth understanding of their safeguarding responsibilities. They work diligently with other agencies to protect and support all children and their families. It is not yet outstanding because: • In some instances, staff do not make best use of their knowledge of what children need to do next in their learning, to plan focused and stimulating activities that promote rapid progress. • The organisation of routines does not consistently take into account children’s own learning preferences; for example, whether they play indoors or outside. This occasionally leads to children becoming restless.
