Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Significant improvements in the quality of leadership and practice have been made in the last 12 months. The pre-school manager, staff and members of the management committee have worked together very professionally to implement and evaluate many positive changes.

• Highly qualified and experienced staff have embraced opportunities to develop their professional knowledge and skills even further. They willingly reflect on their practice and identify ways to capture children's curiosity and spark their imaginations. This is evident in the exciting play areas they create for children indoors, outdoors and at the allotment.

• The manager evaluates ho...w effective staff are in their teaching and identifies where staff can help children further. She ensures staff follow through guidance from other professionals who work with the children, such as speech and language therapists. Parents and therapists say they can see the benefits of this shared approach in children's progress and increasing levels of self-confidence.

• Staff provide a wealth of interesting and creative activities which encourage children to experiment with tools for early writing. However, they do not routinely use these opportunities to excite or sustain children's interest in writing for a purpose. • Staff prepare children well socially, emotionally and academically for school.

However, they do not consistently maintain their sharp focus on challenging the thinking of higher achieving children. • Parents and carers are delighted with the pre-school. They praise staff for the quality of their care and the wide range of activities their children look forward to each day.
