Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good • The highly-qualified manager and experienced staff use the Montessori teaching method effectively to support children’s learning well. They provide a challenging and stimulating environment and encourage children to choose their own activities. Children are well motivated and make good progress from their developmental starting points. • The manager and staff are enthusiastic, nurturing and positive. They get to know children extremely well and help them to form strong relationships. Children are very happy and secure, and thoroughly enjoy their time at the setting. • The manager and staff work well to evaluate the quality of the provision and their practice effectively. They actively include parents and children in the process and make continuous improvements to the quality of children’s care and learning. • Parent partnerships are strong. Staff regularly share children’s development records and give parents helpful ideas for how they can support children’s learning at home. Parents appreciate the individual support they receive very much. • Staff support children who speak English as an additional language to hear and build upon words in their home language as well as English, to support good language skills. • The manager does not precisely monitor the progress different groups of children make in their learning to help close potential gaps and support rapid progress for all children. • At times staff overly direct children’s imaginary play, and do not fully encourage them to develop and follow their own ideas creatively.
