Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The managers have developed good partnerships with the local schools and offer consistent care for children. Staff regularly share information about children’s learning and care needs. • Staff have high expectations of children and promote positive behaviour well. For example, during group discussions, staff encourage children to listen carefully to one another. Children take turns to ask one another questions without prompting. • Children are happy, confident and enjoy the time that they spend at the club. They say that they love taking part in the creative activities and the team games outside. • Staff are welcoming and offer a caring environment. They build strong relationships with the children and get to know them very well. Children are excited to invite them to take part in their play. It is not yet outstanding because: • At times, staff do not consistently respond to opportunities that arise to challenge children to enhance their play experiences further. • Although procedures are in place for monitoring staff practice, the programme for staff continual professional development is not fully established to support them in developing their skills to an even higher level.
