Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff are well qualified, know how children learn and their teaching is good. The pre-school environment is highly stimulating and exciting. Staff utilise the resources extremely well to ensure children’s capacity for learning by exploration is fulfilled. Staff are very good role models. They help children to develop their good social skills, have good manners and be polite. Children learn to play well together, develop empathy and supportive friendships. Children develop strong bonds and attachments to the adults caring for them. The key-person system is effective in meeting children’s individual needs. Staff celebrate their achievements and praise their efforts, helping to build their confidence and self-esteem. The manager and staff team work hard to improve and raise standards across the pre-school. They recognise the importance of regularly evaluating the provision for children and work closely with the local authority to achieve this. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently seek precise information from parents about child’s learning and development when children start at the pre-school. Continued professional development opportunities are not yet focused closely enough on raising the quality of teaching to the highest level.
