Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager, committee and staff work well together to create a happy and harmonious environment for children to play and learn. Self-evaluation is successful. The committee, staff and parents work together to identify and make positive improvements to the pre-school.

For instance, changes to the outdoor area have helped children to gain a greater understanding of how vegetables grow. • Partnerships with parents are well established. Staff successfully use opportunities to work with families and other carers to support children's learning well.

This is particularly effective in supporting children's social and emotional development, to help older... children gain the skills they need in readiness for school. • Staff benefit from regular supervision, coaching and support from the manager. This helps to ensure that staff continue to build on their skills to provide good-quality teaching.

For instance, staff have benefited from training to focus on younger children's learning experiences. • Staff place a good focus on helping children to learn about positive behaviour routines. For instance, they help children learn about the 'golden rules', so that children develop an understanding of how to respect and value the differing needs of their friends.

Children are kind and caring and behave well. • The manager and staff work closely with the local school. They use regular discussions to find out how to best prepare children for their move to school.

For instance, children enjoy opportunities to learn how to put on their school uniform and talk excitedly about visits to meet their new teacher. • Although staff have a good knowledge of their children's abilities, they do not always use this to sharply focus on all areas of their learning, to help children make even better progress. • The manager is yet to extend the monitoring of children's development to precisely analyse the impact of teaching on the progress made by different groups of children.
