Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager and staff have successfully implemented effective changes since the last inspection.

They have worked closely with the local authority and precise action plans and rigorous monitoring by the manager have been instrumental in securing rapid improvements. • Children benefit from a strong key-person system. Staff understand children's individual needs well and work closely with parents to offer consistency of care.

Children are happy and settled at pre-school. • Staff provide a welcoming, well-resourced and nurturing learning environment which allows children to increase their independence and self-confidence. They plan a broad range of ...learning experiences and activities that children enjoy.

All children make good progress from their individual starting points. • Staff observe children carefully and assess what they know and can do and consequently, what they need to learn next. • Although the manager monitors individual children's progress well, this is not as effective when monitoring the progress made by different groups of children.

• Although arrangements are in place to improve the quality of teaching, these are not yet sharply focused in order to raise the quality of staff practice to a consistently good level. • The manager has not fully considered all ways to gather and evaluate others' views in her self-evaluation. She does not use this information to help raise the good quality of teaching even further.
