Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Staff develop excellent partnerships with parents and other providers that children attend. They share regular information about children’s daily care and experiences. Leaders and staff receive complimentary feedback that highlights their positive working relationships with the school, and parents show that they trust them to care for their children. • Staff ensure children have excellent activities, both indoors and outside, to extend their physical development. For example, they plan an obstacle course for them to enjoy and to strengthen their balance, mobility and coordination. • Children display excellent behaviour. They are kind and helpful to other children, and they listen and show respect to staff. Children are clear about the club’s rules and they follow them accordingly. • Staff make very good use of children’s play to strengthen their communication and language development. Children express themselves very well, they demonstrate high level of understanding and they respond to staff exceptionally well. • Leaders’ self-evaluation is consistent and thorough to maintain a high-quality club. They consider feedback from staff, parents and children to ensure they continually provide new and positive learning experiences for all children.
