Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager and staff effectively assess and monitor children's development. The analysis of this information feeds directly into the manager's evaluation of the setting.

This allows her to focus specifically on the needs of children as she makes decisions about future developments. • Staff skilfully promote children's writing skills. For example, they ensure children can access pencils and notepads as they play.

Children pretend to write shopping lists before going to their make-believe shops. Other children pretend to be making notes at work. • Staff highly prioritise children's emotional well-being.

They use additional funding to impr...ove staff ratios, which allows staff to focus on building children's self-esteem and confidence. This supports children with initial delays to make good progress in all areas of learning. • Children develop well.

They work comfortably within the stages expected for their age. • Although staff take children on regular walks in local woodlands and within the community, the manager recognises that developing the outside area would provide enhanced learning opportunities, especially for those children who prefer to learn outdoors. • Where children also attend other settings, there is not yet a highly effective system for sharing information about children's development.
