Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The committee and manager deploy staff effectively. Since the last inspection, they have reorganised the staff team.

Staff now fully understand their roles and responsibilities. This is helping them to work together well to make the required improvements. • Self-evaluation is successful.

The committee and manager have a clear action plan for improvement, which they regularly review. For instance, they meet weekly to evaluate progress towards targets and further developments. They involve staff in the process through regular discussion at staff meetings.

This is helping the whole team drive improvement together effectively. • Staff know t...heir key children well. They complete regular observations and assessments of children's learning, and set next steps for each child.

Managers compare the progress of groups of children. However, these processes are not fully embedded. • Staff have secure procedures in place to support children with additional needs, such as allergies and medical needs.

For instance, they liaise with parents and professionals to create and follow healthcare plans. • Staff organise a range of exciting learning opportunities which help to meet children's interests. For example, they have increased opportunities for messy play in pre-school.

• Since the last inspection, staff have improved opportunities to teach children self-care and independence skills. Children now demonstrate their ability to do things for themselves, such as washing their hands and setting the table during routine times of day. • Children are confident and display positive attitudes to their play.

They make good progress and are well prepared for their future learning. • Staff talk to parents about children's routines and care needs before they start at preschool. However, they do not make fully effective use of opportunities to find out from parents what children already know and can do.
