Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The pre-school is welcoming and friendly. Children and their families feel that they are part of a community and that they are valued and listened to. Children skip into the hall happily each morning and begin exploring and playing with their friends quickly. Staff talk to parents and exchange information about children’s well-being and home life. The pre-school is led well. The senior management team works very well together, complementing each other’s skills and knowledge. They are ambitious and keen to ensure that the pre-school is run to a very high standard. The well-qualified staff are kind, caring and considerate. They genuinely enjoy playing and interacting with children and sit for long periods of time making and rolling play dough with them. There are a range of other toys and resources which is regularly rotated to ensure that children always have something interesting to play with and explore. Children who have special educational needs (SEN) are well looked after by staff at the pre-school. They progress well from their starting points and benefit from one-to-one care and attention. Staff work well with other agencies to ensure care is consistent. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, children’s next steps in learning are not identified precisely enough to help them make the best possible progress. Some inconsistencies in the assessments made of children’s learning occasionally result in an inaccurate reflection of some children’s stages of development.
