Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Staff effectively support the children to behave well and help them to understand what is expected of them. Children are confident. • The manager and staff effectively evaluate their current practice together. For example, they discuss their practice daily and talk about the activities to ensure that they are motivating all the children to learn. • Children make good progress from their start points. Staff alternate resources and toys to provide children with a range of experiences. • Staff are knowledgeable of the children. They work closely as a team, and in partnership with parents to support children to progress in their learning. • An effective key-person system ensures children feel safe and secure. Children receive the emotional support they need to settle and help build positive relationships with others. It is not yet outstanding because: • Staff do not consistently challenge and make the best of every opportunity during child-initiated play and activities, to extend children’s skills to further develop their learning. • Staff do not make use of opportunities to promote children’s understanding of the importance of being healthy to develop physically.
