Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager is very reflective. She closely monitors children’s progress and staff practice and accurately identifies where further improvements can be made to the already good provision. The manager shows a strong capacity for ongoing improvement and further development. The manager and staff are very inclusive in their approach. Children of different ages and abilities successfully and safely learn and play together. They show high levels of empathy and kindness towards each other. Staff are very effective at supporting children’s good health and physical development. Children show great enthusiasm for the wide range of exciting and challenging learning experiences that help them develop their coordination and muscle control. Staff work very well with other professionals to identify groups of children who would benefit from extra support. They successfully help these children to close gaps in their personal, social and emotional and communication and language development. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently make use of opportunities as they arise to encourage children to count and explore numbers. Staff do not consistently organise some of the times when children come together in groups well. At these times, younger or less confident children engage less successfully in their learning.
