Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The manager supports her staff well. For example, she holds meetings with them to discuss their professional development. • Staff attend training which, for example, helps to provide opportunities for children to develop their speaking and listening skills through everyday play experiences. • The extremely strong skills of the key persons ensure that all children are emotionally secure and confident. • Children are independent learners. The well-resourced environment indoors and outdoors is very attractive and inviting to children. This enables children to make decisions about how and where to play. • Staff skilfully plan for children’s individual development, interests and learning needs. They ensure every child makes good progress, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. It is not yet outstanding because: • Occasionally, staff do not make the most of opportunities to explain to children why healthy food is important as part of their healthy lifestyles. • Some group activities and daily routines are not organised effectively to enable all children’s needs to be met.
