Summary of key findings for parents
The provision is Good

  • Staff fulfil their roles and responsibilities well because the committee and manager effectively support them. As part of this, staff have a secure knowledge of child protection issues through up-to-date training.

  • Children enter happily and are familiar with the daily routine. They find their name to self-register and hang up their coat. Staff help children to have a sense of belonging. For example, children have their own labelled peg.

  • Staff set up a good variety of activities in a safe, stimulating and accessible environment. Children are keen to explore and become independent learners.

  • Staff work well together to observe, assess and plan for children's next steps in learning, in consultation with parents and others. Consequently, children make good progress and develop skills for future learning.

  • Staff are good role models and praise and encourage children. Children behave well and build friendships as they play collaboratively during activities.

  • Staff promote children's emotional well-being. For example, they work in close consultation with parents to ensure good settling-in arrangements. As part of this, there is a good exchange of information to meet children's individual needs.
