Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The pre-school environment is welcoming and staff offer children a happy, inclusive place to learn. Staff know the children very well. Children have warm bonds with staff, are content and emotionally secure in their care. The provider has a good understanding of her role and knows the children. She keeps a visible presence at the pre-school and is supportive of the newly appointed manager. Together all staff review and reflect on their practice. They competently use new systems for monitoring the quality of children’s learning. This is making significant improvements to the monitoring of children’s progress. Staff adhere to the provider’s risk assessments, policies and procedures to guide their practice and support children’s well-being. Children behave very well and show awareness for their own safety. Children learn in an exciting and interesting environment. Well-established partnerships with other professionals help staff to support children who need additional intervention. Staff ensure all children get the help they need, and any gaps in learning are closing. All children make good progress, are motivated and eager to take part in their activities. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff miss opportunities to broaden children’s understanding of literature, for example, by using reference books or written text to give further clarity to what children learn. Sometimes, staff are not confident to build on children’s mathematical understanding to increase their interest and curiosity in number, shape, size and measure, for example.
