This provision is good • The arrangement of resources in the extensive and inviting outdoor area provides children with wonderful opportunities for learning. Children make independent choices and staff demonstrate effectively how resources are versatile and can be used in many ways.

• Staff regularly observe, assess and track children's development. They have a very good understanding of what children already know and enjoy, and use this information effectively to identify any gaps in their learning. • Managers have introduced an innovative and effective new method for planning for the next steps in children's learning and their evolving interests.

They use this to plan ...challenging activities to help children to make good progress. • Managers value staff's ideas and utilise their individual skills and interests effectively. They show a strong commitment to continually improving on the good-quality care and learning they provide for children.

• Children behave well at the pre-school. They wait patiently, take turns and share toys and resources. • Staff provide children with very good challenges that develop their physical and investigation skills.

Children are motivated to assess their own risks and carefully consider how to minimise dangers. • Sometimes, staff do not give children enough time to consider and respond to the questions they ask. • Occasionally, some children find it more difficult to make choices in their free play and remain focused on their learning when indoors.
