What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children's enjoyment, well-being and safety are at the heart of this holiday club's provision.

Staff respond well to children's individual care needs. They gather detailed information from parents, which they use effectively to help new children settle. Children make new friendships with ease and talk enthusiastically about the activities they enjoy.

For example, they love to participate in parachute games that staff plan for them. This helps children develop a strong team spirit as they work collaboratively, for example, to raise the parachute into a mushroom shape. Staff explain the rules and boundaries they expect child...ren to follow at the start of each routine event.

They sensitively support children who need extra guidance to behave well. Children collectively say rhymes they learn from staff to help them remain safe, for instance about things to do in the event of a fire. This helps children develop a sense of how to keep themselves safe.

Children love their time outdoors in the fresh air. There are ample opportunities to exercise and practise their physical skills. For example, children instantly remember and follow commands associated with different actions, such as 'runner beans'.

They all run with great control, carefully avoiding bumping into others. Children and staff find this activity very entertaining. They laugh and giggle together.

This demonstrates strong bonds between staff and children.

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

The highly competent senior leaders are proactive in monitoring and sustaining the good standards of care at the holiday club. They constantly evaluate the provision on offer to help drive further improvements.

For example, senior leaders identify that younger children sometimes wait for longer periods of time when participating in adult-led activities. They support individual staff in their professional development and offer ongoing, constructive feedback to help them improve their skills. This is particularly the case when senior leaders coach and mentor individual staff to improve the quality of their interactions with children.

In this way, staff develop a clearer understanding of the best ways to effectively promote children's care and education.Staff provide a very good balance of child-led and adult-led activities. Children have opportunities throughout the day to make independent choices in their play.

They show good understanding of games they previously played and confidently adapt these when playing freely with their friends. For instance, children collectively make up their own versions of an animal impressions game and imitate movements of different creatures for their friends to guess.Children are competent communicators.

They initiate interesting conversations with staff and children. Children show their inquisitive natures by asking relevant questions to find out more. Staff respond with additional facts to support children's growing knowledge.

For example, children from different cultures compare the similarities and differences between ways of life in Japan and England. Staff who witness and take part in such discussions, talk about feeling privileged to be a part of supporting children's knowledge of the wider world.Senior leaders, the club supervisor and staff place a high priority on encouraging children to be independent.

This is evident when children successfully manage their personal hygiene and put on their coats before going outside. Staff encourage children to have a go if they come across difficulties, such as doing up their coat zips. They generously praise children's efforts, which helps to enhance their confidence and self-esteem.

Staff actively support children's understanding of how to adopt a healthy lifestyle. For instance, during mealtimes, children learn to make positive food choices. They know that eating chocolates is a 'treat' and consuming more vegetables helps to promote better health.

Staff remind children to drink water throughout the day. In addition, children understand the importance of washing their hands with soap before they eat and after using the toilet.Parents speak positively about the holiday club.
