Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Children form close relationships with staff. This helps them to feel safe and secure. Children identify their names on entry to the building. This gives them a feeling of belonging and helps to develop their literacy skills in readiness for school. • Staff build close and effective partnerships with parents. Parents are enthusiastic in their praise of the staff and the care and teaching they provide for children. Staff encourage parents to become involved in the life of the kindergarten and to support their children’s learning at home. • All children make good progress in their learning. Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities receive excellent care. Staff work closely with parents and other professionals to ensure that children receive the support they need to achieve to the best of their ability. • Children develop good communication and language skills. They hold conversations with each other and with staff, and talk about their friends’ birthdays and their ages. Children extend their own learning. They make pretend cakes from dough and pretend to blow out candles made from dried pasta. • Managers and staff evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and the activities they provide. They seek the views of parents, children and other professionals when planning for ongoing development and improvement. • Monitoring systems are not consistent enough to ensure that assessments of children’s learning are totally accurate and any gaps in teaching are identified as quickly as possible. • Children do not always have opportunities to explore and use information and communication technology.
