Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff are kind and caring.

They have an effective key-person system in place. This works well in supporting new children to settle in quickly. Children develop secure attachments with staff who respond well to their needs.

Children's language development is encouraged through the range of activities available. For example, they enjoy using magnets to find hidden toy bugs and insects in the sand. Children are encouraged to talk about and describe the insects they find.

They talk about the size, colour and where they may live. The management team carries out regular supervision meetings with staff. Staff are encouraged to evaluate their own ...practice.

Together they discuss improvements and identify training designed to help develop their practice. Children develop their physical skills while playing outside. They enjoy climbing on equipment and riding on push-along toys.

Children eagerly take part in digging and planting activities. They search for bugs outside and delight in looking closely at them through magnifying glasses. Children recognise and name the bugs they find.

It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always involve parents enough in assessing the starting points for children's learning. They do not seek enough information from parents about what children already know and can do when they first start. Although staff respond to children's behaviour, on occasion they miss opportunities to provide clear guidance about what is acceptable behaviour to support children's understanding.
