Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Self-evaluation is highly effective. There is a shared vision and commitment between management, staff and parents to continually drive improvement.

Parents are extremely involved in supporting the work of staff and speak highly of the excellent service they deliver. • Placing children at the centre of practice is integral to everything staff do and a real strength of the setting. For instance, children organise and construct their learning journals with key persons to share in their progress together.

This helps children feel highly involved in their own learning. • Staff ensure a rich and varied curriculum thoroughly supports children's ...learning. Staff use engaging scientific experiments, such as a colour-changing activity, to spark children's curiosity and extend their thinking skills successfully.

• Children laugh in the garden as they dig in the sandpit, hide figures of knights and dragons in plants and investigate living creatures with magnifying glasses. Children are highly motivated and curious to learn. Staff delight in fostering this inquisitive nature to build on children's experiences even further.

• Staff encourage children to consider potential risks in their environment. Children enjoy the responsibility of ticking tasks off on their clipboard, as they check doors are locked and all areas appear safe with staff. This helps children develop a deep understanding of how to keep themselves and others safe.

• All children make excellent progress towards their early learning goals. Children who start at the setting at higher levels than typical for their age, continue to progress exceptionally well. Staff challenge children and provide experiences to enhance their understanding and social skills to help prepare them for their next stage of learning.
