Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Partnerships with parents are strong.

Parents know their child's key person and receive daily updates about what their child has been doing throughout the day. Staff offer regular parents' evening and online journal systems to keep parents informed about their children's progress. • Staff's approach to managing children's behaviour is effective.

They give clear instructions and use picture cards to help children understand their emotions. Staff show delight and enthusiastically praise children for listening. They share the strategies they use with parents for consistency.

As a result, children behave well. • The manager evaluates the pre...-school and fully understands its strengths and weaknesses. She receives guidance provided by a local authority representative and there is a clear focus on continual improvement.

• Staff promote children's physical development and healthy lifestyles well. For example, children benefit and enjoy their daily 'fitness fun' sessions. Children and staff talk about how their hearts beat faster after the exercise.

• Children have many opportunities to develop early writing and literacy skills in preparation for school. For example, staff encourage older children to write their names and they learn the sounds different letters represent. • Staff engage in professional development opportunities.

However, staff supervisions are not targeted effectively to raise the quality of teaching to the highest level. • Occasionally, some staff do not always make the most of opportunities to extend children's thinking skills during play. • Staff do not provide enough opportunities for older children to build on their understanding and skills in using everyday technology.
