Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The leadership team strives to enhance the quality of the pre-school and has high expectations for the staff team. It encourages staff’s professional development. Staff develop a good knowledge of child development and how children learn.

Staff plan challenging activities to help children to achieve and grow in all areas of their learning. The manager monitors the progress children make in their development to identify any gaps in their learning and help them to catch up quickly. All children make good progress in their learning and development.

Children settle quickly into the pre-school and form firm attachments with their key persons. Staff organise a safe and stimulating environment, which helps children to feel safe and secure and develop independence. Partnership with parents is strong.

Staff help parents to feel fully involved with the day-to-day care and development of their children. Children enjoy exploring and learn about their senses in play. For example, they touch, smell and taste different fruits and vegetables in the home corner.

It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not manage children’s behaviour consistently. For example, some staff do not help children fully engage in group activities and they become distracted and lose interest. The leadership team does not involve parents, staff and children to help identify areas for development to improve outcomes for children.
