Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Partnerships with parents are strong and information is regularly shared so that parents know where their children are in terms of their development. The manager and staff have a sound understanding of child development and an expectation that children will achieve well. Effective monitoring supports staff to track children’s progress and accurately identify their next steps in learning. All children make good progress from their starting points. The manager includes the views of staff and parents in her self-evaluation, which is very successfully used to continuously improve outcomes for children. The staff are kind and caring. Children settle well. Staff use praise to boost children’s confidence and self-esteem. The manager supports staff development, enabling additional skills to be gained. For example, after additional training the special educational needs coordinator helps other staff to provide greater continuity of care for those children who need extra support. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently provide opportunities to extend children’s learning through imaginative play. At times, staff do tasks that children can easily do themselves and do not encourage children to build on their independence skills.
