Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Staff appreciate the spirit of holiday childcare.

They create a warm, welcoming environment and offer children exciting activities. Children also have time to relax and talk with their friends, contributing to the development of their social skills. • Staff make good use of their qualifications.

They interact well with children and confidently adapt activities to suit their varying ages and abilities. • Staff act as good role models and children follow their example. They show care and consideration for one another as they share resources and take turns.

• Children recognise that staff are genuinely interested in them and value their cont...ributions. This creates a constructive environment where children develop the confidence to try new activities and have positive attitudes to play and learning. • Management supports staff in a wide range of training opportunities, for example, to provide specialist activities, such as fencing and swimming.

This enables them to offer children a wider variety of activities and ensure that these are always safely presented. It is not yet outstanding because: • Staff do not consistently make the best use of the key-person system to exchange detailed information with parents and inform them about their children's activities. • Staff do not always support children as well as possible to express their ideas and creativity.
