Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The manager implements effective self-evaluation processes and reflects well on the setting’s practice. She seeks the views of others, such as the local authority, and acts on any advice to help improve children’s outcomes. • Children benefit from staff’s effective partnership with parents. Staff gather useful information from parents about what children can do when they begin attending to help plan for children’s individual needs from the outset. Parents are kept well informed of children’s ongoing development and are involved well in supporting them at home. • Staff are friendly and form warm, caring relationships with children and support their emotional needs well. Children are happy, confident and independent. • Children make good progress and develop the skills needed for the next stages in their learning. They have interesting opportunities to develop their creative thinking and physical skills. For instance, they enjoy participating in painting activities and think of their own ideas to create pictures. Children learn to use tools with good control. It is not yet outstanding because: • At times, staff miss opportunities to encourage younger children to join in with different sensory activities to help enhance their exploration and aid their development. • Staff miss opportunities during activities to provide challenge that precisely matches children’s individual needs to help extend their learning experiences even further.
