Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The highly qualified and dedicated manager drives continual improvement. She has developed a strong team who work together to inspire new ideas.

This helps to maintain good-quality provision for children. • Effective coordination with a range of other professionals, helps to identify children and families who need support. • The interesting and varied curriculum captures children's interest and helps to ensure they are absorbed in meaningful opportunities for learning throughout the day.

While this supports children's good progress, staff do not consistently challenge children to achieve at the highest levels. • Consistent, friendly and nurturing... staff positively support children's emotional wellbeing. Children are happy and settled.

They develop high levels of independence and self-care. Their behaviour is very good. • Children's good health is mostly very well promoted.

Freshly prepared meals and snacks help to ensure children are well nourished. Children's individual health and medical needs are securely understood by staff. Children receive fewer opportunities to challenge their physical skills and staff do not maximise opportunities for all children to play and learn outside.

• Relationships with parents are strong. Parents develop a clear sense of trust in staff and value the daily communication about children's care and learning. However, they receive less information that helps them continue to promote children's learning at home.
