Summary of key findings for parents
The provision is good • There have been substantial improvements since the last inspection. The management team and staff demonstrate a dedicated commitment to making ongoing improvements. They seek the views of staff, parents and children, and set clear targets to make positive changes for children. • The staff have a good understanding of how children learn. They complete robust observations of children’s learning. Staff deliver a broad and well-planned curriculum that reflects children’s interests well. Children are interested in their learning. • Children are happy and confident in the welcoming environment. They settle quickly and have developed strong bonds with the staff, and clearly feel safe and secure. • Partnerships with parents are good. Staff work closely with parents to establish what children know and can already do, and share ideas to support learning at home. • Partnerships with other professionals are good and transitions are supported effectively. The move into and through the setting and on to school is planned effectively to support children’s emotional well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: • Sometimes, staff do not consistently give children plenty of time to respond and to develop their listening skills and understanding in communication and language fully. • Some activities, such as story time, are disrupted by other older children playing nearby, which causes some children to become distracted and lose concentration.
