Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The new manager is a highly qualified, experienced and enthusiastic practitioner. She works hard with the senior management team to support and motivate her well-qualified staff team. There is a clear vision for the future of the pre-school based on the views of staff, parents and children. Improvements are closely monitored to measure the impact on outcomes for children. Staff use accurate observations and discussions with parents to identify children’s next steps in learning from the start. Children who have special educational needs or disabilities are extremely well supported. Staff provide targeted interventions based on precise assessments. They develop strong and cooperative working with parents and linked professionals to ensure that children’s specific needs are met. Staff actively encourage parents to support children’s learning and development at home. Parents are regularly informed about children’s progress. Staff provide useful information and events to help parents to understand how children learn. Children behave well. They are relaxed and happy. Children demonstrate a strong sense of belonging and positive relationships with staff. This helps to support children’s emotional well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not help children consistently enough to develop their thinking and problem-solving skills fully in order to make the best of their learning opportunities.
