They actively involve parents, children and school teachers in seeking areas for further development that benefit children and their provision. The manager and staff track all children’s progress accurately and make required assessments. They work together effectively to identify and address any gaps in children’s learning. Children make good progress, given their starting points. Staff are well qualified and dedicated to continually develop their skills. The manager ensures that staff are well supported and guided in their practice, including through regular supervision and ongoing training. The manager and staff work in strong partnership with parents and actively involve them to extend their children’s learning and share their achievements from home. Children form close relationships with their key person and feel emotionally confident to seek reassurance from them. Children are kind, show respect for one another, know what is expected of them and behave well. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not provide activities that encourage children to learn more complex skills to help them make even better progress. The manager and staff do not have effective partnerships with some other settings that children attend to ensure continuity in their learning and care.
