Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is outstanding • Staff have an excellent understanding of how to promote children’s emotional attachments. Children are fully supported by extremely nurturing and attentive staff who organise themselves highly effectively to ensure all children have positive, meaningful play and learning experiences. • Staff develop exemplary partnerships with parents. They expertly support parents to have confidence in continuing their child’s learning in the home environment. • The management team provides excellent professional development opportunities for staff. For example, recent training has helped key staff to address children’s behaviour extremely well and support children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities superbly. Staff are highly responsive to the children’s complex needs. Outcomes for all children are excellent. • The manager provides all staff with regular confidential meetings to discuss their key children, their ongoing suitability and training needs. This, and regular observations of staff practice, ensures teaching has a continuously high impact on all children’s learning. • Children develop a wide-ranging understanding of themselves and others in the community. For example, they visit older people in the community to share special events.
