Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and staff work effectively to help ensure that all aspects of the provision meet the needs of the children. They identify the strengths and weaknesses accurately and focus on improving the outcomes for children and parents. Children are happy in this caring, safe and friendly environment.

They are keen to explore indoors and outdoors. They are well motivated in their play. Children thrive in the well-organised provision and make good progress in their learning and development.

Partnerships with parents are good. Staff regularly update and share information about their child's progress and development. Parents comment on how this helps them to continue their children's learning at home.

Well-established links with other providers and local schools are effective. This ensures that children's needs are maintained and provides continuity in their future learning. Staff are very kind and caring towards the children and have an in-depth knowledge of each child's needs.

They work together closely with parents to make sure every child settles in quickly and is safe and happy at pre-school. It is not yet outstanding because: Although a system is in place to check how well groups of children are learning, the system is not yet fully embedded and the manager and staff cannot demonstrate how rapidly any gaps in development are closing. The manager does not make the best use of all opportunities to reflect on staff's teaching practice and evaluate the impact it has on enriching children's experiences.
