Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers have worked in partnership with staff to prioritise actions and implement pertinent improvements. These sustainable changes have been key to the significant development of the pre-school since the last inspection. Managers and staff complete training and put any new knowledge into practice.

They now respond more effectively to children's body language, especially children who do not communicate verbally, and so offer more appropriate individual support. Staff build professional partnerships with parents. Parents report that they appreciate the nurturing, welcoming environment that staff create and the wide variety of play opportunities they offer c...hildren.

Staff support children well in learning to manage their behaviour. For example, they help children to discuss and resolve any disagreements and to organise fair turn-taking. Improved assessment and planning procedures mean that children now enjoy challenging activities and make good progress in their learning.

Managers rigorously check this progress and quickly address any weaker areas. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not offer many outdoor learning opportunities to fully extend the development of children who prefer to play and learn in this environment. Staff do not consistently support parents as much as possible in building on their children's learning at home.
