Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The manager and staff team continually reflect on how the pre-school can enhance this already first-rate provision. Monitoring and evaluation are extremely thorough and include the views of children, parents and staff. Staff are well qualified and very experienced. They demonstrate an excellent understanding of how children learn. A wide range of outstanding teaching strategies is used to ensure all children become very confident and capable learners. Children’s emotional well-being is extremely well promoted because of the positive relationships between staff, children and parents. Every child is nurtured and their individual contribution and beliefs are highly valued. Partnerships with parents are very strong and parents are fully involved in their child’s learning. Extensive information is shared with parents to encourage and support children’s learning at home. Staff talk to the children in a calm and respectful manner. This helps children to learn how to manage their own behaviour and to make friends. Children enjoy close relationships with their key persons, who help them to feel very settled and secure. Children’s physical development is promoted very well because all children have regular opportunities to play in a highly stimulating outdoor environment. They confidently negotiate space and solve problems together which enable them to make imaginative structures and play spaces.
