Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The quality of teaching is good across the pre-school and some staff caring for children over three years old, demonstrate outstanding teaching which really inspires children to learn. Staff place a strong emphasis on children’s learning. For example, children benefit greatly from the good mix of small-group work, whole group sessions and opportunities to freely explore and discover. Staff use a wide range of strategies to communicate with parents to keep them informed about their children’s progress and help promote their emotional well-being. Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported very well. Staff make time to work with these children, such as offering one-to-one sessions to address their individual targets and to help close any gaps in their learning. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff across the pre-school do not use the information gained from children’s assessments precisely to help them provide highly challenging experiences for every child. Staff caring for children under three years old do not make the very best use of the activities available, to raise the quality of experiences and children’s learning to the very best level.
