Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team is highly qualified and they are knowledgeable early years practitioners, who have a deep understanding of child development and how children learn. They work with the rest of their well-qualified team of staff to help all children progress well. Teaching is very good. Staff use a range of effective teaching strategies to meet children’s individual learning styles. They gather information about children’s interests and attainment when they start in the setting and plan activities, experiences and the environment to help children learn what they need to next. Staff are evaluative, reflective and committed to further developing their knowledge and skills. They have clear targets for improvement and development plans which take into account the views of parents and children. Staff work closely with parents when children start in the setting to help them settle, feel comfortable and safe. Staff get to know children well, follow their interests, care and well-being routines. This helps children form strong emotional bonds with them. Staff are very good role models who have high expectations of all children in their care. Children are well supported to develop consideration and empathy for others, build strong friendships, share, take turns and play cooperatively. Their behaviour is excellent. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, during adult-led activities staff do not encourage children to investigate and explore the materials and objects they are using. Although staff effectively monitor the progress of individual children, they are not yet making the best use of assessment information to closely track groups of children.
