Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is outstanding The environment is highly stimulating and interesting with rich learning opportunities provided through a range of inspiring activities and resources. Resources are extremely well organised to enable children to explore and discover things for themselves. Children are self-motivated and confident to initiate their own play and make use of the excellent opportunities that are available to them. Staff gather thoroughly comprehensive information about children’s learning. They use highly focused observations to plan specific activities that build on children’s next steps in learning. All children, including those who have special educational needs and those who speak English as an additional language, are making rapid progress from their starting points. The inspirational manager and her staff continually evaluate their practice to the highest standard. They are skilled at finding innovative ways to improve their provision and tackle this with enthusiasm. This significantly enhances children’s learning experiences. Children demonstrate exceptionally positive behaviour and staff are excellent role models. The welcoming environment motivates children to become keen learners who listen to and interact extremely closely with staff and each other. Children are helpful and kind to one another.
