Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The staff build positive partnerships with parents. They encourage a good level of consistency in children’s learning. For instance, they share ideas with them in parent workshops. Children learn skills that help to prepare them for their future learning. For example, they develop good early writing skills as they make marks to represent their names. The managers accurately monitor and track children’s individual and group progress. This enables them to highlight any gaps in development quickly and offer support to close them. All children make good progress. Children have good opportunities to develop their physical skills. For instance, they climb, balance and negotiate obstacles such as walking beams. Staff communicate well with other early years professionals. For example, they share children’s achievements and this helps to provide positive outcomes for children’s learning. There is a wide range of opportunities for children to express themselves.

Staff do not make the most of opportunities to extend children’s understanding of other languages further.
