They show contentment as they play and explore with the activities available, which supplement their ongoing learning effectively. • Children play in a welcoming environment. Staff interact and play well with the children to support and meet their individual needs. • Children are kind and considerate to one another. For example, older children help younger children to hang their belongings on pegs, as they cannot reach. Overall, children share well and are considerate to each other. • Parents speak very highly of the staff and comment how their children enjoy the activities on offer. Staff keep parents up to date on their children’s time with them through regular feedback, which supports continuity of care. • Secure recruitment and vetting procedures are in place to ensure that staff are safe and appropriate to work with children. • On occasions, staff do not help children to understand why rules are in place, to develop a deeper knowledge of boundaries within the club. • The manager does not fully reflect on her provision and staff’s professional development, to help raise the quality of the provision to the highest level.
