Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff know the children well and have positive relationships with them. Staff’s genuine interest in, and care for, the children is shown in the ways in which they sensitively respond to children’s emerging needs. Staff consistently interact with children in an interested and enthusiastic manner. Parents are very complimentary about the support the setting offers to their children and to themselves. They talk about how friendly the staff are and how they care for children as if they were their own. Parents comment on the good communication and how involved they feel in their child’s day. Staff feel well supported by their leaders. For example, regular room and team meetings, along with individual supervision sessions, help to create a strong team ethos and a good capacity to continue to develop. Children enjoy learning in a stimulating and exciting environment indoors and outdoors. Staff work resourcefully to make very good use of the premises, resources and the local environment, to enhance children’s learning opportunities. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not effectively support the most able children to continually extend and challenge their learning. Staff have yet to make effective use of newly implemented observation and assessment systems to precisely plan for children’s next steps in their learning.
