Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Staff demonstrate care and warmth towards the children in their care. This helps children to develop strong emotional attachments. Staff join in with children’s games and are strong role models for them. They use praise throughout the session. This helps children to develop friendships with others and to behave well. • Staff develop positive relationships with parents. They talk to parents about their child’s interests, likes and dislikes before starting at the club. This helps children to settle into the club quickly. Staff provide parents with verbal feedback about their child’s time at the club. • Staff foster strong relationships with the host school. They gain information from teachers to identify what children need to learn next. This information is then used well to plan for children’s individual interests and continued learning. • The provider evaluates the quality of the provision effectively. She takes account of the views of the club staff, school teachers, children and parents to help shape future improvements. • Children enjoy a range of outings to places of interest. For example, they enjoy regular visits to the local parks and like to choose their own books when visiting the library. Children also enjoy it when visitors come to the club. This includes the ’animal man’ who talks to them about where in the world the various animals and insects he has brought along have come from. • The organisation of the indoor area does not always give children the opportunity to make informed choices about what they want to play with.
