Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager is very experienced and highly qualified. She works extremely well with her skilled staff, some of whom are working towards higher qualifications. Together, they identify areas that need further development ensuring that the pre-school continually improves. Parents speak very highly about the level of care and education with which their children are provided. They say that staff are extremely supportive to them and their children. Parents feel very involved in their children’s learning and staff keep them well informed about children’s ongoing needs and progress. Children confidently explore the play rooms and the outdoor area. They are making good progress in their learning and development. Staff help them to behave well. Children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities are extremely well supported. Their needs are quickly identified so that additional support and advice is effectively implemented. This helps to ensure that all children are making good progress according to their individual abilities. Partnerships with external agencies and other providers are strong. Staff effectively share information about children’s care and learning. Together, with others, they ensure that there is a continuous approach to meeting children’s specific needs. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always make the best of opportunities that arise to consistently encourage children to explore their own thoughts and ideas. At times, the organisation of some group activities for younger children does not consistently engage them and encourage their full participation.
