Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Children have forged outstanding attachments with staff and are extremely settled and happy. Staff have a superb knowledge of children's individual needs and place the welfare of children as their highest priority.

As a consequence, children are highly motivated, confident and self-assured. Children's behaviour is excellent. • The manager and staff work extremely well together.

They share the same vision for the setting and have high aspirations for all children. They undertake regular evaluation of the service they provide and have identified areas of development. For example, they have identified further training they wish to access.

... The quality of teaching is good. Staff are enthusiastic practitioners and actively engage children in learning. Staff consider the individual needs of all children.

For example, they provide focused sessions for older children who are preparing to leave for school. This helps children to acquire good listening and attention skills. • Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported well.

Knowledgeable staff work with a wide range of professionals to identify and support children's individual needs. All children make good progress in their development. • Partnerships with parents are very good.

Parents are involved in processes of assessment and are encouraged to be part of their child's learning at home. Parents are extremely complimentary about the care provided by staff. They comment that the staff 'treat children as their own' and that 'staff are amazing'.

• Staff do not consistently provide high-quality opportunities for children to explore mathematical concepts, particularly shape, space and measure. • Staff do not plan as many enriching learning experiences outdoors as they do indoors. They do not make the best use of opportunities to support children who prefer to learn outdoors.
