Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • The programme for professional development is targeted to increase staff's knowledge to best support children. For example, staff attend communication and language training sessions along with parents to share a consistent approach for supporting children. • Using analysis, the manager identifies and targets specific areas of teaching.

This supports staff in delivering a comprehensive and wide range of experiences that support children's rapid progress in all areas of learning. • Staff are vigilant in supervising children, while giving them the confidence to identify and manage risks for themselves. In the garden, children make benches out of woode...n planks and blocks and recognise how to make these stable enough to walk across.

• Some older children's rates of progress by far exceed expectations for their age. Staff are alert to this and provide extension activities to maintain the highest levels challenge for children. • Children take part in superbly delivered foreign language lessons that engage them and capture their imagination.

Children are so confident in their abilities that they are beginning to ask and answer questions in Spanish. • Staff's skilful teaching and extensive resources about the natural environment spark children's inquisitive nature. Children examine empty bird's nests, looking at what the nest is made from.

They talk with excitement about watching caterpillars grow into butterflies and seeing them fly away. • Highly sensitive relationships with families help to support children and manage times of change for them extremely well. As a result, parents view the pre-school staff as welcoming and part of their extended family.
