Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The leadership and management team has promptly addressed the action raised at the last inspection. Secure procedures are in place to ensure the suitability of all members of the management committee. The manager and staff team continually reflect on provision and the progress children make. They evaluate how children access activities and resources. They identify areas to develop to ensure they tailor learning experiences to children’s needs. Staff consider children’s interests when planning the environment. Children enjoy taking part in the wide range of opportunities on offer. They play imaginatively in a variety of role-play scenarios. They create stories and play cooperatively with their friends. Children develop secure attachments with staff. They seek staff out for support and reassurance when needed. Staff respond positively to children. They praise children for their efforts. This supports children’s confidence and self-esteem. Staff encourage children to be independent. Children confidently help to prepare a healthy snack and get themselves suitably dressed to go outdoors in wet weather. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not have high-quality opportunities to evaluate and reflect on their teaching skills and interactions with children. Sometimes, staff do not encourage children to listen to others during large-group activities. At times, children lose focus and do not settle quickly, such as when staff read to them and when children share stories from home.
