Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Managers and leaders are energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about the work that they do. They, together with all staff, aim 'to inspire young minds and provide extensive opportunities for children to explore, develop and learn in a homely and safe environment'.

Children of all ages flourish with confidence and gain the skills they require for their next phase of learning, including school. • Children are central to everything that staff do. Planned activities are, largely, focused on each child, their interests and what they need to learn next.

This helps to build on what children already know and adds to the consistently good progress that t...hey make. • Staff lead by example. They advocate that 'sharing is caring' and teach children about the importance of using their 'kind hands' and 'listening ears' to help to promote positive relationships.

Rewarding strategies, such as star of the week awards, help to recognise and celebrate children's personal attributes and good work. • Staff are committed to getting it right for every child. They work in true partnership with parents and other professionals to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Effective strategies, such as implementing targeted learning plans, help to ensure that any gaps in learning are diminishing rapidly. • Staff are proactive in helping children to adopt a sense of community spirit. Meaningful experiences, such as visits from a local police officer, help children to learn about different occupations and contribute towards their ability to keep themselves safe.

• Sometimes, staff intervene too quickly during play. This lessens opportunities for children to think creatively, express their thoughts and solve problems independently. • At times, older children are occasionally distracted by the increased noise levels during activities and, to some extent, this hinders their ability to build on their good listening and attention skills.
