Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff place a high priority on promoting children’s communication, listening and attention skills through their interactions. Staff plan well for the varying ages of children to help ensure activities are appropriate and motivating. Overall, staff establish good relationships with parents. They include them in their children’s learning and value their feedback and suggestions. Parents are very complimentary about the pre-school and the support they receive. Well-qualified staff provide children with a range of exciting activities and opportunities. For example, older children are encouraged to create their own party hats and enjoy participating in their Christmas party. Staff provide a calm, nurturing, relaxed environment where children feel safe and at ease. Children form close relationships with dedicated staff and confidently seek them out to join them in their play. The sensitive interactions by each key person positively supports children’s emotional well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently gather in-depth information from parents about children’s achievements and interests at home to further enhance their learning. Assessments do not consistently show the smaller steps children are making within development bands to allow staff to more effectively bridge any small gaps in learning.
