Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The enthusiastic staff team successfully provides a high-quality learning environment for children in this happy, inclusive pre-school. • Good-quality teaching helps children progress well from their starting points. Where gaps are identified in learning, staff investigate and ensure children get the help they need to progress. • Parents are very pleased with the progress their children make, particularly in communication skills and confidence. They report that staff are always welcoming. • Staff regularly share information with parents about the children’s progress and how learning can be supported at home. • Effective relationships with local schools and focused activities help to ensure children enjoy a smooth transition to school. • Staff work effectively with other professionals to identify and provide the support children need to make progress. • Staff speak calmly and respectfully to children and are positive role models. Children behave well. • Although children have easy access to many story books, they do not have an extensive range of information to support the development of their literacy and general knowledge further. • Staff do not sufficiently encourage children to learn to recognise their feelings and the feelings of others.
