Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager knows the team of practitioners well. She supports their professional development by giving feedback after observing their teaching.

Together they then discuss targets during one-to-one supervisions. This has a positive impact on children's learning and development. • The manager reflects on practice and the overall experience children receive at the setting.

She gathers views from children, parents and practitioners. This leads to the setting continually developing, ensuring children receive good quality care and education. • Practitioners question children skilfully and listen in order to reshape activities when needed.

For... example, during a communication and language group, a practitioner asks children 'where is the small dinosaur?' while pointing to objects on the floor. Children struggle with this so the practitioner holds the two dinosaurs and asks again. The children successfully complete this activity after the practitioner reshapes the question.

• The practitioners do not always respond to children's individual concentration levels and adapt activities to suit these during group times. This impacts the learning children receive during these times. • Children have strong attachments with their key people.

They feel safe and secure in the setting and demonstrate good behaviour. • Children are prepared well for the next stage of their learning. For example, children who are starting school in September walk in from the main gate to the practitioner on the door.

This supports children's independence and self-confidence. • Parents speak highly of the setting. They feel that the practitioners show passion in working with their children.

They are well informed about their children's development and have been supported well with toilet training. • The setting has not fully embedded partnership working with other settings that children attend or other agencies, to promote a fully well-rounded system of communication. This impacts the rate at which children progress.
