What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is good

Children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), are happy, settled and making good progress in all areas of learning.

Children are confident and independent. They choose the toys they want to play with, the songs they want to sing and what to have for snack. Staff plan a wide range of activities for the children.

In the summer, they visit the local park, participate in forest-school sessions and grow a variety of produce in the vegetable plots. Children are eager to join in with the activities provided. For example, they show delight when making their own perfume using flower petals....

Parents say that the children enjoy and benefit from these learning experiences. Parents also comment that they feel involved in their child's learning journey. They praise the staff for the care and education given to the children.

Children's behaviour is good. They are kind to each other and learn to share and take turns. Staff support children in taking care of the learning environment.

Children enthusiastically help staff to tidy up after play sessions and lunchtime. Staff praise children for their efforts and achievements. Children form strong relationships with all the adults in the setting which helps them feel secure.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Partnership with parents is strong. The staff know the children and their families well. They collect information from parents on children's learning and development before the child starts.

The key person uses information received to sequence children's learning. Children make good progress from their starting points. To promote continuity of care, the setting gives parents daily updates on children's routines.

Staff are positive role models for the children. They treat them with kindness and respect. During play, they model taking turns and sharing.

They encourage children to say, 'thank you' and 'please' when appropriate to do so.Staff provide numerous opportunities for children to develop good speech and language skills. They model language and engage children well in conversations.

As children play, staff introduce new vocabulary to support the acquisition of language. Staff repeat babbling sounds made by the younger children. They sing songs while changing nappies and kindly talk to them.

Children are developing effective communication skills. Staff read to children regularly. Children of all ages listen to stories with good concentration.

Staff support children with SEND effectively. Staff quickly identify children who need more help. They put effective strategies in place to support children's learning and development.

The team works in close partnership with parents and outside agencies. Staff use any additional funding well to support children's individual needs.Staff in the baby room support children's development well.

Children show delight when singing nursery rhymes and when participating in messy play. Staff give children cuddles and reassurance, when needed. They talk to the children gently throughout the day.

Staff give close support at mealtimes. Staff carefully consider children's transition when the time comes for them to move to another classroom. Opportunities for children to visit the new room with their key person help them to settle quickly.

Children have access to a well-resourced and safe outdoor garden. However, staff do not make the best use of the garden throughout the year. This prevents children from benefiting from wider and more consistent learning opportunities each day.

The setting provides healthy snacks. Parents provide lunches. Staff talk to children about the benefits of a healthy diet.

Staff attend safeguarding training regularly to keep their skills up to date. There are rigorous recruitment procedures in place. This ensures staff are suitable to care for children.

Regular risk assessments ensure that the premises are as safe as possible. There is a secure entry system in place and staff monitor people who access the premises.

What does the setting need to do to improve?
