Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The manager and staff are highly committed to providing children with excellent care and learning. They continually review and adapt the provision superbly to provide the very best experiences for children.

Children eagerly join in with activities and make outstanding progress from their starting points. All groups of children are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their learning, including starting school. Staff are extremely skilled in motivating and engaging children during their self-initiated exploration and discovery, to superbly extend their critical thinking.

For example, older children are thoroughly absorbed as they ...investigate which objects float in a tray of water. They experiment and work out how much more water they need to fill the tray, showing excellent problem-solving skills. Children benefit greatly from the excellently organised environment which stimulates children to explore in the superb and highly focused activities.

For example, younger children investigate enthusiastically with staff to learn how to make patterns and shapes using brushes and water. Extremely strong partnerships with parents and other professionals contribute towards children's excellent progress. Staff gain excellent information about what children can already do to inform their meticulous assessments of children's learning and progress.
