Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Leadership and management are strong. Leaders and staff have high expectations for the setting. Supporting children and their parents is at the heart of all the setting's work.

Parents, present and past, comment that the services and support offered to them and their children is 'fantastic' and 'invaluable'. • Children play harmoniously in the safe, secure and extremely well-resourced learning environments. Babies excitedly explore the outdoor area, smelling flowers and feeling the textures of the different plants.

Older children experiment with making different marks with paints and chalks. This supports their literacy and small physical skills.... • Children arrive in high spirits and warmly greet staff and their friends.

They quickly settle to their self-chosen activities and are ready to learn. Staff value children's contributions and follow their ideas in play. Children have active imaginations, are motivated and participate well.

• Staff are well qualified and experienced. They know children very well and build strong bonds with them from the outset. Staff observe children regularly and plan highly stimulating activities that capture children's individual interests and promote the next steps in their learning.

All children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, make consistently good progress across all areas of learning. • Staff do not make the most of opportunities as they arise to extend children's language and vocabulary beyond their immediate knowledge and understanding. • At times, staff miss opportunities during snack time and lunchtime routines to encourage children to have a go and do things for themselves and extend their self-help skills even further.
