Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and her staff establish positive relationships with parents. They work closely with other professionals to help children transfer successfully to other early years provisions when children are three years of age. Senior leaders identify regular training opportunities to extend staff professional development to improve outcomes for children. For example, staff use their learning to consistently teach children mathematics through a good range of play activities. The manager and her staff know children’s interests and observe children effectively. They use the information they gain to plan activities that help children make good progress from their starting points. The manager and her staff plan interesting and purposeful learning environments that help promote children’s social, communication and physical skills well. Staff role model good manners to teach children good social skills. They use praise effectively to help encourage children to build on their existing skills and achievements. Senior leaders have a clear understanding of the provision’s strengths and weaknesses and have plans in place to achieve further improvements. It is not yet outstanding because: Although staff work together to support the needs of individual children, leaders do not focus on monitoring teaching strategies as closely as possible, to help the less confident staff improve further. Staff do not use every opportunity to talk to children about healthy eating to help them make informed decisions about food choices.
