This provision is outstanding The management encourages staff to evaluate the effectiveness of their practice together as a team. The management and staff fully include children and take into account their ideas and wishes. This helps to provide exceptional outcomes for all children. Children gain excellent early reading and writing skills. For example, they learn to recognise words and use these skills to write down and record the birds and nature they see outdoors. Children are extremely confident and settled. They excitedly seek out their key person to share their thoughts. Children are very emotionally secure. All children, including those who are learning English as an additional language and those children who have additional needs, make outstanding progress. Staff support all children exceptionally well. For example, they use an extensive range of visual aids and hand signs to support children’s learning and understanding. The management accurately monitors and reviews children’s progress. This helps staff to highlight any gaps in development and support children to catch up quickly. Staff build excellent partnerships with parents. They encourage them to be fully involved in their children’s learning and development. For example, staff share information such as healthy eating ideas and activities to complete with their children at home.
