Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The inspirational leadership team is dedicated to providing exceptionally high-quality care and education for all children. Managers and staff reflect carefully on their practice. They take into account the views of parents and children when making any changes. Staff are excellent role models and provide clear boundaries and high expectations of children in all age ranges. They shower children with praise that relates precisely to their actions. This helps to support their superb understanding and exemplary behaviour. Partnership work with parents is extremely effective. Parents speak very positively about the progress their children make at the setting, particularly in the development of their confidence and social skills. Staff successfully use a wide range of methods of communication to keep parents exceptionally well informed about how children’s learning can be supported at home. The well-qualified and experienced staff provide each child with an individually tailored plan to help meet their specific learning goals. Children make rapid progress in every area of their learning and show wonderful levels of enthusiasm throughout all activities. The warm and caring staff know the children in their care particularly well. Children develop secure attachments with staff and form firm friendships with each other. They thoroughly enjoy their time at the setting.
