Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Managers have high expectations for the setting. They gain the views of practitioners through regular meetings and one-to-ones. • Managers put a strong focus on professional development, which contributes to high morale among the team. This has a positive impact on the provision for children. • Managers have good systems in place to support practitioners’ performance to aid the consistent quality of teaching. • Practitioners provide a welcoming, well-resourced and nurturing learning environment where children increase their independence and self-confidence. • Practitioners plan suitably challenging activities for children. They provide two focused groups per day, such as using technological toys. The practitioners encourage the use of communication and language by introducing new words, such as ’lens’ on the camera. • Children’s health, behavioural and emotional needs are well considered and supported. Children take part in ’Bunny Bursts’ daily. They run three laps with their key people and peers around the school field. This is part of the setting’s physical early years status. • At times, the routines of the day are not flexible enough to enable children to have uninterrupted time at their self-chosen activities. • Parents speak highly of the setting. They feel well informed about their children’s progress. They are also thankful for the support with behaviour and toileting. • Practitioners work well with local schools to ensure smooth transitions for children. They have moderation meetings to easily transfer information on children’s progress. • Managers have not fully considered all the ways in which to help parents to understand that improved attendance will promote even better continuity in their children’s progress.
