Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The provider reflects on the service she provides, including gathering the views of parents and staff. This helps to identify improvements to make, to continually benefit all children. • Children build secure bonds with staff. This has a positive impact on their emotional well-being. Children of all ages demonstrate that they are happy, settled and comfortable in the setting. • Staff know the children well. They regularly assess children’s level of development and use this information to target children’s ongoing learning. For example, staff use small-group activities to help support children’s social skills. This helps children to increase their confidence. • Children have very good opportunities to develop their physical skills. For example, they climb and balance, and use soft mats to roll, jump and run on. Children learn about the world around them, for instance, as they take part in ’Woodlands Wanderers’ at the local woods. Staff pay close attention to health and safety. They are vigilant and complete regular checks to ensure that all areas used by the children are safe and suitable. • Staff have established good links with the local primary school. They are committed to working together with staff to help support children with their move on to school. • Staff do not always provide children who prefer to learn and play outdoors with the best possible opportunities to enhance their early reading and writing skills. • Although staff do engage with all parents to support children’s learning in the setting and at home, partnership working is not yet fully effective in all cases.
