Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • The pre-school benefits from a cohesive staff team who work exceptionally well together. They are dedicated, enthusiastic and strive to provide the best possible care and learning for the children. • Parents are fully included and actively encouraged to contribute to their child's learning.

Children are given bags which contain a library book to read at home. Children's achievements are shared with parents every day. In addition, a links book is written in every week to inform parents what children have been doing, their next steps in learning and ideas to help them to continue with learning at home.

Parents are extremely happy with the se...rvice provided. They say children rush to come to the preschool, staff share lots of information and children are prepared for school. • Children are supported when they move on to school and are very well prepared for the next stage in their learning.

Staff visit schools before children move and teachers come to the pre-school for a few visits to see children in their familiar surroundings. Staff complete an assessment form, which is shared with teachers who say that this is beneficial to help them establish a baseline for where children are in their learning. • Children learn about nature and the world around them.

They hunt for worms in the garden and put them in the wormery that they have made using sand and mud. They look at the tunnels the worms have made and the patterns they have formed. Children know that a spider has eight legs, and are filled with awe as staff tell them that spiders have more than two eyes.

• Children flourish in the pre-school and develop high levels of self-esteem. One child is 'helper of the day', which helps to raise their self-esteem and give them a feeling of self-worth. They sit on a special chair and help staff to take the register and count the number of children who are present.
