Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The enthusiastic provider and her team of staff put a great deal of thought and effort into the experiences they provide for children. For example, in their own time, they research ideas for activities online to help maintain children's high levels of interest.

Staff are looking to source a course on face painting, recognising this as a current interest of the children. • Staff work very well together. They listen to each other's ideas and use good methods of communication.

This helps to aid the smooth running of the club and provides a good role model for children on how to behave. • The club is well organised. For example, parents and children ...receive a detailed plan of events before the club opens during each holiday.

Children know what activities will be available. This helps them to make informed choices about how they spend their time. • Well-qualified staff oversee the care of the youngest children.

They draw on a wealth of experience gained through their work in the local schools. This helps to ensure the individual care needs of every child are met from the moment they start. • Children are clear about expectations of behaviour.

For example, they know that on outings they must listen to the staff and stay with the group, and they may be courteous and wave if they see someone that they recognise. Staff listen carefully to children's requests and respond in a calm and positive way to reach an amicable agreement. • Parents describe the club as 'laid back' with a relaxed atmosphere, and say their children get to do messy things they cannot do at home.

Children say 'We like it the way it is' and 'I like to make new friends'. • Staff do not work as effectively as possible with all other settings that children attend, to share information and further support continuity for each child. • Staff do not consistently encourage the most able children to take on the responsibility of small tasks in order to further support their developing independence.
