What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children are happy to attend the warm and welcoming setting. They are collected from school by familiar and friendly staff who know them well.

Young children are taken promptly to the setting's room by their key person. They are familiar with routines and put their belongings away. Staff remind children to stay hydrated and take their drinks bottles from their bag.

Children help themselves to a piece of fruit if they are feeling hungry. The environment is well-organised and set up according to children's interests. Children eagerly make choices about their play.

They display high levels of concentration as they part in drawing and colouring activities. Children proudly show visitors a picture of a unicorn they have created. They gift staff pictures and cards that they have made during their day at school.

Children enjoy some quiet time if they wish. They crawl into a cosy and comfortable den where they play with sensory toys, such as popper mats, and take a few minutes for peace and quiet. Children know what resources are available and ask staff if they know where a specific car is.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Staff support children's emotional needs well. They promote open discussion about the school day and encourage children to share any positive or negative experiences.

Staff take time to listen and provide children with reassurance and support. For example, they ask children if they would like help to speak to their parents about this at collection time.Children learn to follow effective hygiene routines.

They wash their hands before sitting down for snack. Staff supervise children from a distance when they wash their hands. This promotes a sense of trust and responsibility to complete tasks sensibly.

For example, at snack time, children are provided with their own plate and knife and spread toppings for themselves. Staff monitor the sugar content of the foods provided for children. Children learn that only a small amount of honey is good for them.

This helps children to gain an understanding of healthy lifestyles and supports good oral health.Children form close friendships with their peers. They enjoy playing group games, such as football, and have opportunities to run and jump across the tyre track.

Children's behaviour is good. They are aware of the setting's rules and take turns each day to read these out to the group. This means children are reminded about what is expected from them.

However, further explanations about the importance of rules and why these are in place would benefit younger children's understanding.Leaders and managers have effective procedures in place to monitor the quality of the service they provide. Surveys are sent out to parents at the end of term to gather their views.

Parents are happy with the service the setting provides. They explain that their children are always happy to attend and state how they have grown in confidence. Parents feel well informed about children's experiences and appreciate regular communication by newsletter and email.

An internal phone system has recently been installed between the setting's room and the school to promote the sharing of information further.
