Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff at the playgroup are well qualified and experienced.

Ongoing professional development enables staff to build continually on their good knowledge and skills. There are effective arrangements in place for supervising the work of staff. • Children learn about weight and measurement.

They use scales to weigh fir cones, shells and stones. Staff support the activity well, encouraging children to guess what might happen. This promotes children's thinking skills.

• Staff take swift action to support children whose development does not meet expectations. They work effectively with other professionals and have high ambition for what all chil...dren can achieve. • Children play well together.

Staff support children to settle any minor disagreements and children behave well. • Children for whom the playgroup receives funding make good progress from their individual starting points. Children rapidly increase their personal, social and emotional skills and quickly develop in confidence.

• Staff do not always actively ask parents for their views when there are specific areas of the playgroup that they want to review, evaluate and improve. • Staff do not consistently use their good knowledge of children's development to assess their learning. At times, staff carry out observations to gather evidence to prove what they already know about children's development, rather than gaining information to plan activities that provide the highest levels of challenge.
