Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff know the children very well and meet their care needs superbly, particularly the youngest children. For example, they immediately recognise signs when babies become tired or hungry, and promptly adapt their plans to meet children's needs before they get upset.

All children form extremely secure attachments with the staff team. Staff support children's learning effectively and plan stimulating activities that capture their attention and interest. Children are very eager to learn and join in, and make good progress from their starting points.

Children enthusiastically take responsibility for their own care needs. For example, they show strong d...etermination as they try to fasten their coat and slice fruit for snacks. Staff provide good support for children's communication and language.

For instance, they routinely use signs and visual aids, and give older children enough time to consider and respond to questions to enable them to share their thoughts and ideas. It is not yet outstanding because: The manager does not support staff as well as she could, so they make the most of all learning opportunities to extend children's learning further. Although the manager tracks individual children's progress well and is developing how she monitors learning between groups of children, at present, these are not entirely successful to recognise and target all gaps and patterns in learning swiftly.
