What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is good

Children are happy and enjoy their time at the pre-school.

They enjoy a wide range of experiences to help them develop across all areas of the curriculum. Children direct their own play and are eager to learn. For instance, they choose to play with the dolls, dress up and pretend to go on holiday.

Staff join in with children and skilfully extend their play. Children talk about their past experiences of visiting France. They describe how to get there and suggest different things they can do as they develop their imagination.

Children form secure attachments with the kind and caring staff. They regularly seek st...aff out to involve them in their learning. Children enjoy listening to stories with a familiar adult.

They cosy up in the book corner as they share numerous books. Children are engrossed in the story. They extend their communication and language skills as they chat to staff about the main events and different characters.

The manager is ambitious and has a clear vision for providing high-quality, inclusive care and education to all children. Staff are passionate about giving children the best start in life. They are good role models and teach children right from wrong.

A consistent approach is applied to help children understand the expectations of their behaviour.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Staff take time to get to know children's individual personalities. They find out what children understand, know and can do.

Staff carefully observe children and work together to plan a range of activities to challenge them. They use children's interests as a starting point and extend on these to help children learn and develop new skills.The environment is well organised.

Staff think carefully about the layout so that it promotes children's curiosity and interest. Overall, children have access to a good variety of activities to support their learning and development. However, staff have not fully explored all ways to promote opportunities for children to learn about people and communities beyond their immediate experience.

Staff are positive and praise children for having a go. Children are well behaved and develop a 'can-do' attitude as they try out new skills. They are encouraged to make independent choices.

However, on some occasions, staff complete tasks for children which they are able to do for themselves.Children's physical development is supported well. They enjoy their time outside and have plenty of opportunities to be active.

They ride bikes and scooters, play chasing games and throw and catch balls.Parents speak highly about the setting. Staff involve parents in their children's learning and keep them well informed about what their children are doing on a daily basis.

For example, children have recently completed a home learning task where they made bug houses and brought them into the setting to share with their friends.Managers and staff work in partnership with additional settings that children attend. They regularly share information about children's interests and development to strengthen children's learning and ensure a consistent approach.

The manager monitors staff performance through regular supervisions and appraisals. She observes staff as they interact with children and gives them feedback to help them develop their practice. Staff attend regular training events and share good practice with other early years providers to keep their knowledge up to date.

The manager obtains feedback form parents, children and staff to help her reflect on the setting. Together they have identified areas which they would like to improve. For example, there are plans in place to renovate the outdoor area so that children can enjoy more outdoor learning experiences.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.Managers and staff know what signs and symptoms might indicate a child is at risk of harm. They understand how to identify and report any concerns they may have about a child's welfare.

The manager ensures staff keep their knowledge up to date and all staff are aware of wider child protection issues. When appointing new staff, the manager follows safer recruitment procedures to assure her that staff are suitable and have the skills they need to fulfil their roles.

What does the setting need to do to improve?

To further improve the quality of the early years provision, the provider should: nenhance the range of experiences that help children to learn about their own community and those of others make the most of all opportunities to further support children's growing independence skills.
