Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff provide children with a varied range of interesting and challenging activities. Children are motivated and engaged in their learning. They choose what they want to play with and are encouraged to explore and use their own ideas to extend their learning. Children are cared for in a welcoming environment and demonstrate high levels of self-esteem. They develop very good relationships with their key person and show that they feel emotionally secure and confident. Staff are good role models and consistently reinforce rules and boundaries. Partnerships with parents are, overall, good. They are involved in their children’s learning and regularly receive updates about their child’s progress through parent’s evenings, newsletters and daily discussions with the staff team. Parents are provided with ideas for activities that support children’s continued learning at home. The manager and staff use self-evaluation strategies effectively to identify strengths in practice and areas for improvement. The views of parents and children are used to improve outcomes for children further. It is not yet outstanding because: Although children’s individual progress is tracked effectively, methods to monitor the progress of different groups of children are still in their infancy. Staff do not gather detailed information from parents about what their children can already do when they are new to the setting in order to maximise learning from the outset.
