Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team is motivated and continually strives for improvement. They are effective in promoting opportunities for staff to develop their knowledge and skills. Regular supervision meetings and appraisals enable staff to identify their own strengths and areas for improvements. Parents speak highly of the staff team. They feel their children receive consistent care from their key person. Staff work in partnership with parents to promote a shared approach to children’s care and learning. Parents are regularly informed of children’s progress. Staff have a secure knowledge of how children learn and as a result, teaching is good. Activities are varied and motivate children to learn. Staff plan well to support children through times of change, such as the move to a new room or on to another setting. This helps make sure children’s emotional well-being is maintained. Routines in the pre-school room reflect those that children will experience in school. Staff discuss the move to school with them to help them understand what to expect. They discuss how they will meet their new teacher and make new friends. This helps children to prepare for the school environment. Staff are knowledgeable about the children in their care. The key-person system is well embedded and helps to ensure that children are always supported by an adult who knows them well. Babies settle well and are happy as they play. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not give children enough opportunities to share their thoughts and opinions or to explore their own ideas. On occasions in group activities, some children are not actively involved and staff do not swiftly recognise this and find ways to engage with them.
