Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff are skilled at following children’s lead. They provide challenging and exciting experiences which motivate children to learn. Children thoroughly enjoy their activities in the forest school and show enthusiasm to join in. • Staff have developed exciting ways to capture older boys’ interest in developing their mathematical skills. Children make particularly good progress in this area of their learning and show readiness to start school. • Staff regularly praise children and encourage them to take an active part in their own self-care. Children develop good levels of independence and have high levels of self-esteem. They confidently ask for their own sized wellingtons and begin to zip up their own waterproof suits. • The manager and staff team are good role models for children. They have built strong relationships in the local community and are kind, caring and welcoming. • The manager has developed effective partnerships with other settings children attend, such as school. She shares information about children’s learning to help promote continuity. • Staff do not collect precise information about every child’s starting point on entry. This means there are some gaps in children’s baseline assessments. • The manager has not fully developed ways for parents and children to provide feedback on future improvements.
