Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is outstanding • Staff are enthusiastic and demonstrate superb levels of care and warmth towards children. This significantly enhances children’s ability to settle into the setting quickly and become ready to learn. Staff use high levels of meaningful praise throughout the day. This promotes children’s sense of self-esteem and embeds their emotional attachments, empathy for one another and their positive behaviour. • Staff develop exemplary relationships with parents. For instance, they provide parents with initial home visits. This ensures staff gain pertinent information about what each child already knows and can do from the outset. Staff skilfully use this information, alongside their own baseline assessments, to identify concise starting points for each child. • Staff develop highly professional relationships with other providers, including the on-site school. For example, staff give the utmost priority to the sharing of comprehensive information between both parties. This fosters a high level of consistency and continuity for each child’s care and learning. Outcomes for children are excellent. • The provider ensures that all staff consistently receive one-to-one meetings with the manager. This ensures that staff are provided with regular opportunities to discuss their training needs, their key children and any concerns they may have. Staff undertake an extensive range of in-house and off-site training opportunities. They share their new learning and fresh ideas with others during staff meetings. • The provider works closely with the manager and staff to meticulously monitor the educational programme for children. Together, they expertly track individual and groups of children, ensuring any gaps in learning are swiftly closed. This, and regular observations of staff practice, ensures that teaching provides optimal challenge for all children and fosters their rapid progress.
