Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager monitors children's progress closely and ensures that the quality of assessment records is consistently high.

She uses information about children's progress carefully to see where she can improve practice. For example, she has recently worked with staff to offer children better opportunities to learn about the world around them. • Staff plan exciting and varied activities to support children's learning.

They present them in a manner which entices children to explore and helps them to engage well in their play. For example, children eagerly make pictures and find out about colour mixing when they drip paint onto paper plates and spin t...hem round in salad spinners. • Children, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), make good progress from their starting points.

Staff support children who have SEND well. They work in close partnerships with other professionals and the children's families to adapt practice to ensure all children have equal opportunities. • Staff promote positive behaviour effectively.

Children have a strong understanding of the rules and expectations. For example, they consistently put their hands up when they want to speak during whole group activities. Children develop social skills well.

They show a good understanding of turn taking and sharing. They play together and show a willingness to help each other. • Staff do not consistently use teaching techniques which support children to consider and develop their own thoughts.
