Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager and newly appointed leadership team of experienced and well-qualified staff know the setting well.

Roles and responsibilities are clear, allowing the staff to carry out the day-to-day running confidently. They are aware of the setting's strengths and plan well to make future improvements. • Teaching is consistently strong in all age groups.

Staff assess children accurately and plan appropriate next steps. They consider children's interests and purposefully choose resources and activities to accommodate their individual needs. For example, a child talks about buses and then has the opportunity to make a junk model bus.

• Both ...the indoor and outdoor environments are well organised and stimulating. High-quality resources are provided throughout and different areas are used to enhance learning experiences. For example, there is a wellness garden which has calming sounds and a water feature.

Staff encourage children to use this area to reflect and relax. • All children make good progress from their starting points. Practitioners work well with other agencies to ensure children with special educational needs and/or disabilities reach their best possible outcomes.

• Children's understanding of the world is promoted. However, visits into the local community would further develop these experiences. • Opportunities to strengthen links with different schools and share more comprehensive information to help transition are sometimes missed.
