Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Staff know children well. They make effective use of what they know about individual children to plan for what the children need to learn next. • Snack time is a very good opportunity for children to sit together and develop social skills. Staff subtly introduce vocabulary of colour, smell and taste as the children eat fruit. • Partnerships with parents are effective in meeting children’s care and learning needs. Parents feel that the staff are highly responsive to any comments or suggestions they make. • Staff demonstrate a good understanding of how to protect and safeguard children. They fully understand their roles and responsibilities for ensuring children’s welfare. • The manager shows a strong commitment to improvement. She uses a good range of feedback from parents, staff and children, to help her evaluate the service. The plans for development are well focused to improve the quality of teaching and learning. • Children make good progress from their various starting points. Their development is carefully monitored by their key person, to identify what they need to learn next. It is not yet outstanding because: • Although systems for supervision and training are good, the manager does not extend these further to raise the teaching to a higher level. • Occasionally, staff do not adjust teaching during planned activities to consider the varying needs of the children.
