Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The established and qualified team are led well. The management team ensure staff understand and meet their professional responsibilities effectively. Together, they evaluate practice and strive to improve. The recently adapted outdoor environment provides children with a wide variety of stimulating resources to capture their interest. • Teaching is good. Staff are particularly skilled at supporting children’s communication and language and mathematical awareness. Small-group times are used effectively to develop children’s talking and listening skills. Children join in stories and repeat familiar refrains, count and sing songs. • The manager and her team swiftly identify children who need additional support to meet their developmental milestones. This is especially evident for those children who need extra support in speaking. Very effective partnerships with a range of professionals ensure children catch up quickly. • Children enjoy warm, nurturing relationships with their key person. Their emotional needs are prioritised. Staff assess their levels of well-being and have a good knowledge of their family circumstances. It is not yet outstanding because: • For some children, assessments of progress are less thorough. Planned activities do not always focus sharply on what individual children need to learn next. • While parents do receive a termly progress summary for their child, previously effective methods of helping parents to support their child’s learning at home even more have lapsed.
