Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager provides a stimulating environment that encourages children to investigate and explore. Her successful relationship with the school ensures that children can access a variety of areas such as the hall, playground and sensory room.

This allows staff to provide children with a broad curriculum of interesting experiences. Staff prepare children well for school. Children become familiar with school routines and staff support them to become involved in school life.

For example, children eat their lunch with the older children and take part in school events. This helps children become emotionally prepared to embark on their next stage of lear...ning. Parents find the staff team to be very supportive for both the children and the families.

They report on how professional and caring they find the staff and how well their children have settled and progressed. Parents say their children come home tired and happy, and the staff have made a huge difference in their children's lives. Staff provide children with a variety of experiences and resources that ensure they develop well physically.

For example, regular activities at the beach, multi-sports sessions, yoga and demanding outdoor equipment help children learn to take risks, acquire valuable physical skills and develop understanding of keeping themselves safe. It is not yet outstanding because: The manager does not rigorously assess staff's performance and set highly focused targets that would allow them to improve teaching even further. Consequently, staff do not always use teaching techniques that challenge children to their full potential, for example, by asking questions that help children to think critically.
