Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The well-planned and presented environment provides highly enabling conditions for rich and purposeful play. For example, children become deeply engrossed in water exploration, sand-play activities and acting out storylines with the wide range of high-quality role-play resources available. Staff are well qualified and demonstrate a firm understanding of children’s interests, skills and abilities. Staff regularly observe children’s development and provide activities and to engage and motivate them. Children make good progress in their learning. The leadership and management of the setting are strong. The manager shows a firm drive to providing high-quality care and education for children. The long-standing staff team shares this vision and shows a strong commitment to its roles. Self-evaluation is effective in supporting the continual improvement of the setting. Children are independent and tend to their own self-care needs. They relish the opportunity to help with snack-time preparations. Children are confident, self-assured and demonstrate excellent behaviour at all times. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not make the most of all opportunities to support and encourage children to think critically and use their problem-solving skills. Systems of monitoring and evaluating staff practice are not fully incisive to help identify aspects of teaching that can be enhanced even further.
