Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Since the last inspection, leaders and managers have worked together to evaluate and continually improve the quality of the pre-school. Additional training, coaching and support for staff have improved how they work together as a team to meet children’s individual needs.

Staff skilfully and confidently manage children’s challenging behaviour. Children make good progress from their starting points, including children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. Staff accurately assess children’s progress.

They have recently started to complete detailed summaries of children’s development. Children develop good independence. Staff patiently help children to learn to do things for themselves.

For instance, they demonstrate and explain to children how to attend to their personal care needs and dress themselves. Under close supervision, children thoroughly enjoy cutting up fruit for snack time and helping to load the dishwasher. Staff work well in partnership with parents and other agencies.

They share information with therapists and teachers who visit the pre-school to provide children with good continuity of care. It is not yet outstanding because: Sometimes, the organisation of the room used at lunchtime causes children who have SEN and/or disabilities to become unsettled. Staff do not consistently respond to children’s interest in books to develop their pre-reading skills.
