Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good All children are happy, very well settled and enjoy particularly strong emotional attachments with their key person and staff they regularly see.

Staff are highly responsive to children's individual needs and support children's emotional and physical well-being exceptionally well. Children have superb opportunities to learn about themselves, their peers and the wider world, in context of their own experiences and learning. For example, children research images online of mosques before drawing and building their own, following some children sharing their experiences during group discussions.

The manager is highly skilled, experienced and qualified. She regularly reflects on the strengths and weakness of the provision. The manager and staff seek and act upon the views of parents, children and other professionals.

There is a strong drive to promote the best outcomes for children and their families. Staff know children's interests, current skills and abilities. They regularly observe and assess children's development and provide activities and experiences to engage and motivate them.

Children make good progress in their learning. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not seize opportunities to help children extend upon their ideas and thinking. Not all partnerships in place with other early years providers are fully established to ensure all information regarding children's progress is well known.
