Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and the well-qualified staff team work hard to create a stimulating and interesting environment for children. They observe and interact well with children as they play, helping children to make good progress in their learning and development.

Children are encouraged to behave well. Staff manage any minor disagreements effectively and teach children to understand age-appropriate expectations. Children are polite and older children show good levels of confidence.

Parents speak very highly about the manager and her staff. They say that new ideas implemented have been extremely beneficial for their children, such as the introduction of book... bags to take home and share. Parents receive frequent information about their children's progress and they feel very involved in their children's learning.

The committee and the management team work together very well to identify areas to develop. Since registration, they have consistently evaluated the quality of the provision to identify achievable targets and improve practice further. The views of all staff, children and parents are included in this process.

It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff are overly enthusiastic in providing answers for children. For instance, they do not give children enough time to consider and reply to questions themselves. The monitoring of staff performance is not strong enough to clearly identify how individual staff members can raise the quality of their teaching practice even further.
