What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Highly enthusiastic and friendly staff welcome children happily as they arrive at this club.

Children enter with confidence and beam with delight as their friends arrive, and they excitedly welcome them with a hug. While children wait for the day's activities to begin, they chat with friends, play board games and engage with craft activities. Staff are always close by to engage and support those children that are quieter or who are attending the club for the first time.

The leaders are aware that children from a wide range of backgrounds attend the club. They have a strong focus on ensuring they expose all children to a wi...de variety of opportunities. Each day has a theme, such as sports day, Easter egg hunts and spring arts and crafts.

In addition to this, leaders arrange visits from external organisations. For example, they have previously had a visit from a mobile zoo and made cakes with a baking company. This holiday, a nurse is due to visit to run workshops across the different age groups, where children will learn about their bodies and managing emotions.

Children's behaviour is excellent. Staff are strong role models for the children and make them aware of the expectations at the beginning of each day. Children form good relationships with staff.

They are aware they can talk to them if they need help and children enjoy playing with them. Staff know how to successfully engage children. They use their enthusiasm and excitement to ensure each and every child has a positive experience at the club.

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

The highly motivated, passionate leaders are always striving to improve their already excellent practice. They empower staff to enrol on training to develop their practice and build their confidence. All staff attend safeguarding and paediatric first-aid training upon starting to ensure they can help keep children safe.

Staff report they love working at the club. They state they are very well supported by the leaders, and particularly enjoy team building days, where they get to socialise with all team members and their families.Parents are happy with the club and the activities provided.

They speak highly of the nurturing and caring staff, who take time to get to know their children and make them feel comfortable at the club. Leaders provide parents with a monthly newsletter and share a weekly schedule of planned activities online, and on the club notice board. This enables parents to choose the days which suit their children best.

Parents are well informed.Leaders split children into groups appropriate to their age and needs. Staff then plan appropriate activities to cater to the children in their group.

Staff engage older children in games like 'the floor is lava' in the outdoor space and play games of dodgeball in the sports hall. Staff support younger children to take part in sports day games. They help children jump over small hurdles and engage in ball games.

All children are excited and eager to take part in games and activities.Leaders ensure they find out about children before they start at the club. Upon enrolment, parents complete a registration form, sharing information about their children.

If children have any additional needs or medical requirements, leaders contact parents and external agencies to discuss this further. Leaders find out what strategies they can put in place to provide children with an inclusive experience while at the club.Staff provide children with daily opportunities to be physically active and offer them healthy snacks and meals.

Staff teach children the importance of keeping themselves healthy. They wash their hands before meals and have regular drinks breaks. Younger children talk to staff about the water they drink and say it is healthy.

This leads staff to discuss with children how water hydrates our bodies and why it is important to drink water often.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.There is an open and positive culture around safeguarding that puts children's interests first.
