Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • The provider has an excellent understanding of their role. They work with the management team highly effectively to drive continuous improvement. This is illustrated by their joint creation of a precise objective-driven action plan.

Staff take swift and effective steps to implement the action plan, which they review regularly. These actions help to maintain the outstanding level of provision. • Managers monitor the progress of children meticulously.

For instance, they analyse the development of different groups of children. All children, including those who speak English as an additional language, those with special educational needs and/o...r disabilities (SEND) and those in receipt of additional funding, make rapid and sustained progress from their starting points. • Staff have very high expectations of what children can achieve and their teaching is highly responsive to children's needs.

For instance, staff swiftly identify children that need support in some aspects of their development. They plan and deliver targeted sessions to help to close these gaps in children's learning. This helps all children to be well prepared for the next stages of their education.

• Staff develop outstanding partnerships with parents and get to know families well, such as through regular home visits. They provide parents with excellent guidance and support. For example, parents borrow story sacks to help them promote positive bedtime routines.

Staff invite parents into pre-school and parents say that this gives them ideas for how they can support their children's play. • Staff develop children's understanding of how to keep themselves safe exceptionally well. For example, they teach children about sun safety and show them how to apply sunscreen.

They teach children about road safety. This is demonstrated when staff create an outdoor cycle track and provide bicycle helmets. Children set up routes with road safety signs and put helmets on before they cycle around their route.
