What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children arrive happy and have fun at this friendly and welcoming club. They form warm relationships with staff and quickly make friendships with their peers.

Children behave very well. They are independent and take responsibility for putting away their belongings. Children feel safe and settled.

Older children, who are familiar with the club, enjoy taking on the role of 'club rookie' and proudly help new children understand the club's rules and routines.Children feel valued as each morning they talk to staff about their interests and together they plan activities for the day. Children choose which activity they would like... to join in with.

For example, some go outside to play 'dodgeball', and others remain inside to dance and play 'musical statues'. Children excitedly run around and laugh with each other. Staff are good role models and enthusiastically join in with children's play.

They offer children guidance and praise during these activities. This supports children's confidence and self-esteem.During the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the club remained open, apart from a small period of closure during the first lockdown.

Leaders made a number of adaptations to club practice to ensure that children and staff remained safe. For example, children were grouped into 'bubbles' to promote social distancing.

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

The leadership team of the club is strong.

They implement robust recruitment and vetting procedures to ensure staff are suitable for their role. Leaders have a good understanding of their roles and responsibilities. They implement effective induction procedures and ongoing training for new staff.

This helps staff to feel confident and supported in their role.Staff make sure the environment is safe and secure. They continually assess risks during activities.

For example, when playing a team game in the outdoor area, they remind children to be mindful of a cat passing through. Recognition of this, and immediate communication with children, demonstrates the club's ethos of safety and consideration for others.Leaders have established good partnerships with other professionals, such as headteachers of local schools.

They work closely together to share information and ensure children's needs are well supported.Children settle quickly and display a strong sense of belonging. They engage with visitors and proudly tell them about their daily routines at the club.

For example, children explain why they come together each morning for a 'briefing'. Staff explain how this time is used to get to know new children and discuss the club's rules.Staff support children to adopt good hygiene practices to prevent the spread of germs.

They provide children with ample opportunities for fresh air and exercise in the spacious outdoor area. Children energetically run around as they play group games.Mealtimes are a social occasion, where children engage in conversation with their friends.

They have good manners and help staff to tidy away when they are finished. Children's well-being is supported, as staff encourage them to have a break from the club's busy environment. Children have the opportunity to relax after lunch and enjoy the quieter activities available.

Staff motivate children well, so much so children are eager to take part in all activities. For example, each morning, staff and children complete a fire drill to ensure everyone, including the newest children, fully understand the club's procedure should there be an emergency. Staff consider how to keep this activity exciting for children who regularly attend.

They explain how children work together to beat their record time of exiting the premises.Partnerships with parents are good. The club manager greets every child each morning.

He talks with parents at collection times to share information about their child's day. The manager passes on all important information, such as any minor accidents, including bumps and grazes.Leaders value the views of parents, who complete regular surveys to ensure they are happy with the service provided.

Parents comment on the 'wide range of activities' and 'confident and capable' staff. Leaders monitor parent feedback and use any comments to make changes to practice. For example, following a questionnaire response they decided to include more arts and craft activities to support children's varied interests.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.Staff carry out daily safety checks on all areas of the club to ensure that children play in a safe environment. They supervise children well.

Staff have a good understanding of safeguarding and are aware of the potential risks that children and their families may face. They are able to identify the procedures to follow should they have concerns about a child's welfare and know what to do if they do not feel sufficient action has been taken. All staff receive regular safeguarding training and are aware of wider safeguarding issues, such as how children can be exposed to extreme or radical views.
