Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team continually reviews and reflects on the service staff provide for children and families. The manager has addressed the recommendation from the previous inspection well. She now consults parents and children about improvements, including the most effective way to share information about children’s development. Staff interact with children positively, supporting their communication and language development well. For example, staff skilfully encourage older children to explain what is happening in familiar stories. They successfully help them to extend their sentences and build their vocabulary well. Children make good progress from their starting points. Strong partnerships with parents support a consistent approach to children’s learning and development. For example, staff provide activities for parents to share with their children at home, consolidating and extending their children’s learning. Staff organise a stimulating learning environment with an interesting range of resources that encourage children to explore. For example, babies develop their curiosity and manipulative skills as they investigate wooden and metal objects. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not adapt activities well enough to keep children fully engaged to help them make the best possible progress in their learning. Staff do not consistently encourage children to take responsibility for small tasks to further develop their independence.
