Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Relationships between staff, parents and children are respectful. Children settle quickly into daily routines and respond with enjoyment to learning. They develop a thirst for knowledge and display excellent attitudes to learning. Children’s behaviour is excellent. • Staff know children remarkably well and are very passionate about their learning. Leaders and staff rigorously check the progress of each child and groups. When identifying gaps in children’s learning, they provide excellent support to help narrow gaps in children’s learning. Children make outstanding progress in relation to their starting points. They are extremely well prepared for the next stages in their learning. • Staff are very sensitive to the needs of babies. Babies babble happily and enjoy playing with others. They love exploring toys to find out how things work. • Children have wonderful opportunities to explore natural resources. For example, they experiment with exotic fruit and make superb comments on the colours, shapes and taste. Older children confidently compare and share how a dragon fruit has a different taste and texture from an avocado. • Staff establish very strong partnerships with parents and keep them fully informed about their children’s academic progress and well-being. Parents know how to fully support their children’s learning in the setting and beyond. • Leaders have very high expectations of what children can achieve. They thoroughly check the quality of the provision to help ensure that children learn and flourish.
