Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The managers create a very positive atmosphere where staff, parents and children feel valued and supported. They lead their hard-working, well-qualified staff successfully and together they continue to develop the provision. They reflect closely on practice and make continual improvements to maintain children's good outcomes.

Staff support children's communication skills successfully. They encourage plenty of conversation about children's interests, home lives and views. Staff model clear and age-appropriate language and introduce new words for children to learn.

Partnerships with parents are strong. The managers encourage regular communication and... involve parents in all aspects of their children's learning. They value parents' contributions highly and regularly discuss children's interests and next steps.

The caring managers and staff spend plenty of time playing with children in a positive way. They build strong bonds with the children, who are very happy, settled and secure. The inclusive and nurturing environment supports children's emotional well-being successfully.

Children are confident and make good progress in their learning. It is not yet outstanding because: Some staff do not give children enough time to think and respond to the questions they ask before offering their own suggestions. Staff do not consistently assess children's starting points precisely to help monitor their progress from the very beginning and spot any gaps in learning immediately.
