Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children arrive happily at the club and are pleased to see their friends. They settle quickly and enjoy a range of opportunities to play indoors or outdoors. Staff know the children well and have a good understanding of their interests and needs. Staff make good use of this information to provide interesting play resources and activities for children to enjoy, helping them make good progress. Children behave well and develop good social skills. They are polite and helpful towards one another and show a good understanding of the rules. This is supported well by staff who respond to children’s behaviour positively at all times. Partnerships with parents are encouraged by the club and make a good contribution to supporting children’s well-being. There is a good two-way flow of communication and information sharing. Parents are complimentary about the club and share that their children enjoy their time there. Children, generally, make choices about what they want to play with and are well supported by staff. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not effectively use everyday activities and routines to provide opportunities for children to extend their independence skills. Staff, sometimes, do not give sufficient attention to the physical environment, so that all areas are welcoming and inviting.
