Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is outstanding • Leaders and managers are fully committed to staff development as they strive to maintain the excellent level of teaching and learning they provide. Staff are equally committed and make full use of the regular meetings they have with their managers. They discuss and agree ways to enhance their existing skills further to the benefit of all children. • Partnerships with parents are highly effective. There is a genuine commitment to involving parents with their children’s education. For example, staff provide homework bags for all children, including babies. Parents say they are more than happy to help their children to complete the tasks. This helps parents to complement what children are learning in the setting. • Leaders and managers are closely involved with the transitions children go through, whether this is between care rooms within the setting or on to their next learning environment, such as school. This is highly effective in helping to support children’s emotional well-being. • Staff supervise children well and prioritise children’s understanding of how to identify risks and stay safe. For example, there is a regular emergency evacuation practice and children help to complete risk assessments. They discuss possible hazards and how to reduce or eliminate the risk. • Staff are well qualified and dedicated to supporting children’s development. They are enthusiastic teachers and their enjoyment of working with children is evident in their interactions with them. • Staff are quick to identify any gaps in children’s development. They work closely with other agencies to obtain any extra support the children and families need. As a result, all children make the very best progress they can from their starting points.
