Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Since the last inspection the manager and staff have reviewed their practice. This results in any necessary changes or additions being made to ensure that clear evidence is available, particularly in relation to staff’s understanding of all aspects of safeguarding and the support provided for children’s learning, development and progress. The staff team has recently undergone some changes and the team works very well together. Staff use their initiative and are deployed effectively. This promotes children’s safety because staff provide good supervision during children’s free play and activities. Effective risk assessments are in place and suitable steps are taken to reduce risks to children. For example, the safety gates on the stairs are secure and sturdy and the substantial cover over the pond is fixed in place. Children are provided with a wide range of well-planned activities that are led by their interests and they are keen to take part in. Children benefit from staff’s positive and encouraging interaction. Babies enjoy looking at books, toddlers fill buckets with sand and pre-school children help prepare and weigh the food for the nursery pigs. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, children do not have sufficient time to think about what they want to say in response to questions from staff before they move on with further questions. Sometimes, children are not prepared for imminent changes in the routine, such as when it is nearly lunchtime and do not have time to finish what they are doing.
