Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Children are happy and well cared for in a safe and welcoming environment. From a young age, they build trusting relationships and develop good friendships. Staff manage children’s transitions to their next stage of learning well. Children settle quickly and become confident. Staff provide a broad range of activities, which they plan according to children’s interests and learning priorities. Management and staff monitor children’s development regularly, which enables them to quickly address any gaps in learning and teaching. Children make good progress. Strong partnerships with parents help staff meet children’s individual needs effectively. Parents report positively on their children’s experiences and development. Management supports staff professional development well to ultimately benefit the children. For example, several members of staff are extending their knowledge of child development as they study towards higher-level qualifications. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always make the best of opportunities that arise to extend children’s knowledge and understanding. Staff sometimes miss chances to encourage children to think for themselves. Occasionally, their questions lack the opportunity for children to solve problems or think things through.
