Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff skilfully teach children about the expectations of school. Children gain excellent independence skills and confidently choose their own play. All staff effectively evaluate their practice together. For instance, they have daily discussions to reflect on how well the day’s events engaged children. This helps them continually provide activities that keep children motivated to learn. Children have good opportunities to explore and investigate. For example, they enjoy regular experiments, such as learning about light and dark and how to make shadows. Children have very secure emotional attachments to staff. They have an excellent sense of belonging and outstanding levels of well-being and self-worth. Children develop good mathematical skills as they play. For instance, younger children enjoy number songs and older children complete simple sums with confidence. The manager and staff closely monitor children’s individual and specific group progress. This supports them to quickly highlight any gaps in development. Staff provide children with good support to help them move on to the next stage of their learning promptly. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not encourage children to develop more extensive early reading and letter recognition skills to help further support their future learning. Staff do not make the most out of opportunities to encourage parents to share children’s achievements from home.
