Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The quality of teaching is good.

Children make good progress in their learning. Staff have a secure knowledge of the early years foundation stage and work very well together as a team. The playgroup's key-person system is particularly strong and successful in supporting children and their families.

• Information gathered from parents about what children know, understand and can do before they start at the setting is very detailed. Staff use this information to plan support for children's future learning swiftly and effectively. • Partnerships with parents are strong.

Parents speak highly of the playgroup and are very happy with the progr...ess their children make. Good links with future schools children attend help ensure a consistent approach to support for children's development. • Staff are respectful and kind.

They help teach children how to keep themselves healthy and safe. • Managers are experienced and have a thorough understanding of their roles and responsibilities. Managers and staff have a good knowledge of safeguarding and procedures to keep children safe.

Detailed risk assessments help staff identify and minimise any potential hazards. • Staff are well supported in their continued professional development. They reflect well on training attended and the impact it has on their practice.

• There is scope to deploy staff more effectively to better support children's learning during group times. • While overall support for children's communication and language is good, staff do not always give children enough time to respond to their questions. This means opportunities for children to practise and extend their language are sometimes lost.
