Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children and babies investigate and explore using a wide range of toys and resources, indoors and outdoors, that help support their learning and interests. They make good progress in relation to their starting points. Staff have formed positive relationships with parents. For instance, they provide them with daily updates on children’s progress and information about the activities they take part in, to help support home learning. The management team implements good safeguarding procedures. It is fully aware of its role in protecting children and what to do should it have any concerns about children’s safety and welfare. Children have daily opportunities to exercise, such as playing ’parachute games’ with friends and balancing on beams to practise their physical skills. Children learn to respect and value their own and each other’s differences. They use well-developed social skills, have good manners and consistently behave well. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff working with older children do not consistently maximise opportunities to challenge and extend children’s learning to the highest levels. The provider does not fully evaluate the progress that specific groups of children make, to precisely target improvements to provide learning of the highest quality.
