Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Children develop warm, trusting relationships with their key person, who responds to their individual needs well. This helps children develop good levels of confidence and self-esteem to support their emotional well-being effectively. • Staff assess children’s learning on entry to the pre-school and identify their next steps. They plan effectively to build on children’s interests and skills to ensure they make good progress. The quality of teaching is good and staff understand how children learn. They provide activities that motivate children’s play and challenge their learning effectively. • Staff support children’s communication and language skills effectively. They engage in conversations with children about their experiences at home. Children demonstrate their good communication skills when they play with the dolls. They talk about how to look after the dolls and what they have for their dinner. Staff skilfully ask children questions to develop the conversation and to encourage their speaking skills. • Partnerships with parents are strong. Parents are very positive about the care and consideration staff show towards their children. They are well informed about the progress their children make and ways in which they can help their learning at home. • Management and staff reflect on and evaluate their practice and see what is working and what is not. They have put together an effective action plan to help them to make any necessary improvements and maintain a good-quality provision. • At times, staff do not encourage older children to use the correct mathematical language to describe three-dimensional shapes or to compare sizes in order to help extend their mathematical knowledge further. • Management have not established effective partnerships with other early years settings that children attend in order to help provide consistency in learning for all children.
