Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Teaching is consistently good with some outstanding elements. The manager implements meticulous systems to monitor the progress of different groups of children and uses her findings to close any gaps in their learning. Partnerships with parents are excellent. Staff use exemplary channels of communication to exchange information about children’s learning. They invite parents to attend workshops to find out how they can support children’s learning at home. The playroom is vibrant and highly stimulating. It is thoughtfully planned and equipped with an impressive array of high-quality resources. Children are motivated learners, who confidently explore their surroundings. The accomplished manager has created a culture of ongoing reflection and evaluation. She regularly consults with parents, staff and children to ascertain their views and opinions. This helps to drive continued improvement and ensures that planned developments meet the needs of children and families. Staff place a strong emphasis on promoting children’s developing speech and language skills. They engage children in fun activities, where they practise making different mouth and tongue movements to aid their pronunciation. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff do not focus precisely on supporting children to develop their good listening and concentration skills further. Staff do not exchange detailed information with other early years settings that children attend, in order to fully complement their learning.
