Staff support children's play and develop their understanding of being kind to friends. • The quality of teaching is good. Staff know the children well and make accurate assessments of thei...r learning.

They use this information to plan interesting activities linked to the next steps in children's learning and their interests. • Children form secure attachments with caring and affectionate staff. This supports their emotional development and means they explore with confidence and enjoy trying new things.

• All children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who receive funding, make good progress in their learning and development. Staff work exceptionally with parents and outside agencies to ensure they understand children's individual needs. • Children's play is occasionally interrupted before and after structured activities and mealtimes.

This has a negative impact on their learning. • Staff do not always allow children to take risks in their play. This limits children's ability to learn about how to keep themselves safe.
