What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children enjoy a wide range of highly engaging activities and they are extremely happy and keen to attend. They demonstrate a clear sense of belonging and have strong bonds with the members of staff. Staff provide an environment where all children are valued, respected, included and well cared for.

They place high regard on ensuring children have a voice within the club. For instance, staff regularly seek the children's views and opinions on the club. They act on these quickly and children feel they are well listened to.

Staff have very high expectations of the children. They are excellent role models. As a result, childre...n's behaviour is superb.

Children are extremely kind and considerate to others and offer help and support to their friends.

They continuously check in with their younger friends to ensure they understand what needs to happen next to help their bracelets take shape.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Partnerships with parents are strong.

Staff regularly gather parents' feedback to help to continually improve the care they provide. They give parents a detailed daily handover and keep parents informed about their children's daily achievements at the club.

Staff are excellent role models. They have a very calm and consistent approach. Staff work hard to give children choices to be active or relax.

Children spend lots of time concentrating and persevering on tasks of their own choosing. For instance, some children are content with creating paper fortune tellers, while others are happy reading their favourite stories. This shows that children are content and self-reliant.

However, the area for reading is not as inviting and comfortable as it could be. Staff are aware of this and are currently working on improving this area, as they recognise that reading books in comfier surroundings leads to better enjoyment of the stories.Staff devise innovative ways to make activities fun.

Children enjoy the opportunities to play outside. They enjoy playing ball games and exploring the playground in a variety of ways. For example, children take part in inspiring team-building activities that support their physical skills as well as reading schemes such as World Book Day.

For instance, staff develop a game of hide and seek with cut up book covers that children need to find to create the pictures. Children excitedly run, offer each other suggestions on where to look and search the playground and its resources, sometimes managing their own risks by climbing trees. This causes great enjoyment and engagement from all, as well as promoting a healthy competitive spirit.

Children display their enjoyment so much that they continue their play by hiding the pieces for the staff to find, demonstrating that children enjoy leading their own play.Staff have a good working knowledge of the early years foundation stage curriculum. They seek to understand what children already know and can do, as well as what children's current interests are.

They use this information to plan experiences and activities that, overall, help to motivate children to learn. For example, children actively take part in cooking opportunities. They willingly explore and investigate the changes in form as chocolate is warmed up.

Staff increase the use of children's everyday mathematical language around time. For example, children estimate how long the chocolate needs to be melted for, counting the seconds out loud as they watch the clock hands move around.Staff are provided with superb levels of support.
