Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff establish positive relationships with children and get to know their individual personalities well. Children develop a good sense of belonging and positive well-being. Parents are well informed and involved in their children’s learning. For example, staff share children’s achievements daily and regularly inform them of early years updates. Children develop good independence to support their future learning. For instance, they choose their own play and find their own belongings with confidence. There is good use of the local community to build on children’s learning. For example, they walk to the post box to post letters and eagerly await the postal worker’s arrival. Children learn to respect and understand other people’s similarities and differences from around the world. For instance, they explore traditions of other countries and religious beliefs, such as dressing in saris and playing Aboriginal bongos. All staff build good links with other early years professionals. For example, the manager regularly meets with the settings children also attend, to share their good progress. This helps provide them with a good, consistent approach to their shared care and learning. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not make the most out of opportunities to fully engage children in developing their early reading skills and enabling them to enjoy quiet and relaxing times. The manager and staff are not making the best use of how they monitor the progress of different groups of children to ensure planning is highly beneficial to every child’s learning needs.
