Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Changes to the management team have resulted in a clear and targeted development plan to continue to improve children’s care and learning experiences. The recently appointed manager is dedicated and demonstrates high aspirations for the setting. All previous recommendations have been addressed. • Children settle well, make friends and play together cooperatively. Their behaviour is good. • Children develop good physical skills and have plenty of opportunities for fresh air as they enjoy extended periods of time outdoors. • The environment is bright, clean and well presented. Children sense of belonging is promoted and their work is valued. For example, staff display photographs of children alongside their work. • Children benefit from good opportunities to learn about the natural world. They observe chicks hatching out and learn to care for them as part of the ’living eggs project’. • Partnerships with parents are good. Staff provide parents with opportunities for further involvement in their children learning through, for instance taking home ’Flo the travelling bunny’. • The tracking system to monitor the progress of groups of children and to tailor teaching, if required, to quickly close gaps in children’s learning is not fully embedded. • On occasions, some staff miss opportunities to extend children’s learning during imaginative play to further enhance their creative thinking.
