Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff are friendly, caring and form warm bonds with children. They are sensitive to children’s needs and support their emotional well-being effectively. Children are secure, safe and well cared for. Children play in a stimulating, interesting and welcoming environment. This is a particularly strong aspect of the setting’s practice. Staff provide creative, exciting, open-ended experiences for children to encourage them to share their ideas and explore. Children are excited, curious and keen to join in. Staff successfully support children’s communication, physical, personal and social development. All children develop skills that support their next stage of learning. For instance, children develop their hand-muscle controls well, including learning to use tools and equipment with good control. The manager reflects on the quality of the setting well. She has a clear plan of what she wants to achieve to help further improve children’s good outcomes. She seeks the views of others, such as parents and staff, to help evaluate the setting’s practices. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not gather enough information from parents about their children’s abilities from the outset to inform their initial plans for children’s learning. At times, staff do not match their questioning to the individual needs of the most able children, to challenge them and to extend their learning further.
