Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff share information with parents about children’s learning through, for example, written reports and daily discussions. They provide opportunities for parents to extend their children’s learning further at home and offer books and mathematical resources. Children are very confident and keen to arrive in this welcoming pre-school. Staff provide children with a good range of exciting and stimulating activities and equipment that children can freely access. This helps children to be motivated to learn and to follow their interests. Children learn key skills and are well prepared for their move on to school. Staff provide children with opportunities to dress up in the school uniform and talk to them about the school environment and teachers. Staff are well qualified and supported well in their roles. The manager helps staff to reflect on their practice and to identify professional development opportunities. Recent training has helped staff to support children with their literacy and mathematical skills. Parents comments positively about the pre-school. They say that their children are happy and staff provide a friendly and homely environment. Children demonstrate that they feel safe and are emotionally secure. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not gather enough detailed information from parents about children’s abilities when they first start. The manager has not yet implemented a system to monitor the progress that different groups of children are making.
