Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff offer a welcoming and inclusive learning environment. Children settle well into daily routines, make friends and play together in harmony. They feel safe and can approach staff for help when needed. Children’s behaviour is generally good. Staff are sensitive to the needs of the children and help them catch up if required. Children make good progress in relation to their individual starting points. They are well prepared for the next stages of their learning, including starting school. Children have wonderful opportunities to develop their physical skills in the outdoors. For example, they learn to manoeuvre bikes and scooters safely and climb the apparatus confidently. Staff keep parents well informed about their children’s academic progress and well-being, and give them guidance on how to support their children’s learning and development in the provision and at home. Managers continually monitor and evaluate the quality of the provision to help ensure that staff meet children’s learning needs and care effectively. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff do not provide a high level of challenge to support children’s speaking and to aid their understanding. Staff do not always encourage children to manage tasks for themselves so that they become more independent in their learning.
