Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager is experienced and knowledgeable and wants to do the very best for every child in the setting. She works in strong partnership with the setting owners to plan for continuous improvements. The views of staff, parents and children are sought to ensure that development planning reflects their needs. Teaching is good. Staff know their key children well and plan a range of engaging and developmentally appropriate activities and experiences to build on children’s interests. This helps them to learn what they need to do next and progress well. Parents are excellent partners in learning. They feel very well supported and involved in all aspects of the setting and appreciate the warm and supportive welcome they get from staff. Parents feel well informed about children’s progress and know what they can do to promote learning at home. Staff are well qualified and have a good understanding of how children learn and develop. They are committed to further developing their knowledge and skills. Supervision meetings and training opportunities support professional development well and help improve outcomes for children. Children form strong emotional bonds with staff and feel secure in the setting. They learn to follow rules and routines and develop good social skills. Staff have high expectations of all children, who behave extremely well. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff are not making the very best use of assessment information about the attainment of groups of children. Staff do not always evaluate the impact of changes to practice on outcomes for children.
