Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager is very well organised, which helps her to run the setting efficiently. She works hard to provide children with a welcoming, safe and interesting place to play and learn. • Children arrive happy and keen to spend time with their friends. Staff show a genuine interest in children’s discussion and play. This helps to create a warm and relaxed environment. Children are eager to participate and display good behaviour and social skills. • Children make choices about where they play and how they use resources. Staff plan a wide range of interesting activities and new experiences to engage children’s curiosity and build on their interests, to ensure positive outcomes. • Staff work well with parents to help them understand how to further support children’s learning at home. They have many ways to share information about their children’s learning and development. Parents speak highly of the setting. • Highly effective arrangements help to secure early intervention for children, when required. Strong partnerships with schools, external agencies and services helps staff to understand and meet children’s individual needs. • On occasions, staff do not challenge children to think and they ask too many questions that require a simple answer. • The manager does not evaluate the impact of staff practice rigorously enough to raise the level even higher.
