Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff have a good understanding of each child's individual development and plan accurately towards their next stages in learning. • Staff work very well with parents and other professionals to quickly identify and support any gaps in children's learning.

This helps to make sure that children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and children who speak English as an additional language make good progress given their capabilities. • Staff provide a warm and nurturing learning environment where children make caring relationships with them. This helps to support children's emotional well-being effectively.

Children are keen to exp...lore the stimulating environment and display good levels of confidence. • The manager has worked hard with the staff and gained support from local early years advisers and external support, to help successfully address the actions and recommendations raised at the last inspection. • Staff supervision is strong.

The manager provides effective support and guidance to help staff to continue to improve their teaching skills. After recent training, staff have improved their interactions with children and have seen good progress in their language development. • At times, when all children are joined together, the noise levels rise and some children are not fully involved in a meaningful way to fully support their learning.

• Overall, children follow good hygiene practice. However, there are some occasions when staff miss opportunities to promote children's hygiene practice to the highest possible level. For example, staff do not remind children to wash hands after coughing into them or blowing their noses.
