Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The management team supports staff well to develop their knowledge and skills. For example, recent training about children’s language development has helped staff learn about the importance of listening to children and giving them time to respond to questions. • Children enjoy their play and are keen to ’have a go’ and participate in activities. Staff get to know children’s abilities and support them well to make good progress. • Parents speak highly of staff and say they are very supportive of their children and family, keeping them clearly informed about their child’s activities and progress. Staff actively encourage parent’s involvement with their children’s learning. For instance, they regularly provide suggestions of activities parents could do with their children at home. • Children behave well. Staff give a consistent approach and support children effectively to understand how to share toys and take turns. Staff are friendly and welcoming and children respond happily to them, developing a positive sense of emotional well-being. • Although staff plan motivating activities for children’s outdoor play, they do not always promote all aspects of their learning as effectively in all the garden areas. For example, to consistently support the interests of those children who learn best outdoors as well as possible. • Staff sometimes miss opportunities to extend the younger children’s learning. For example, to challenge their thinking and problem-solving skills and provide a wider range of purposeful activities to support and develop all their abilities more consistently.
