Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children of all ages enjoy their time in the club. They have a clear sense of belonging and explore the indoor and outdoor play space confidently. An effective key-person system is in place to support younger children in helping them to feel part of the group. Partnership with parents is strong. Parents and grandparents speak highly of the club and say their children are often reluctant to leave at home time. Staff exchange information with parents to enable them to be fully aware of children’s activities and to provide continuity of children’s care. Robust recruitment procedures are in place to ensure that staff are, and remain, suitable for their role. The committed staff work well together, effectively utilising their individual skills and experience. This has a positive effect on improving children’s enjoyment at the club. Children are happy and say that they like attending this club. Their views on activities are sought and welcomed by staff and they play a full part in activity planning. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always take full advantage of the good relationships they have with the other settings that children attend to gain even more information about their learning to complement this through activities at the club. The management team have not fully explored additional ways to promote staff’s professional development to help raise standards to the highest level.
