Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are happy and settle quickly into the setting. They have strong relationships with staff, who know them well. Staff provide an interesting environment for children to explore.

They have a good knowledge of their interests and provide activities which motivate children to learn. Observation and assessment of children's learning are effective. Staff plan challenging activities which encourage children to think and develop their skills.

All children, including those who speak English as an additional language, make good progress. Partnerships with parents are good. The manager and staff have worked hard and improved ways to encourage learning... at home.

For example, sharing activity ideas and providing children with book bags to take stories home to read with their parents. The manager and staff understand the importance of working in partnership with other settings that children attend and local schools. Teachers are invited to the setting to meet children and discuss their progress with their key person.

This helps support their move to school and provides a consistent approach to learning. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not organise children's time on the computer effectively to ensure that they are benefitting from consistently good learning opportunities. At times, staff do not fully extend opportunities to develop children's knowledge and understanding of numbers.
