Summary of Key Findings for Parents
“Staff work consistently across all rooms to deliver a good quality programme of activities and learning experiences for children. As a result, teaching is consistently good and children are stimulated, challenged and well prepared for their next stage in learning.
Staff are skilled and confident teachers of mathematics. Therefore they maximise opportunities in play and routines to enhance children’s learning in this area.
Leaders effectively monitor the consistency of staff performance and provide staff with regular training opportunities. Therefore, staff are motivated as their skills continually enhance and this improves teaching which raises the overall outcomes for children. For example, staff have learnt sign language which they use with all children to support their language development.
Staff provide an inclusive learning environment where all children have equal opportunities to thrive and staff regularly assess and plan experiences for their individual learning. As a result, all children make good progress in their learning and development including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.
Staff are caring and foster children’s well-being. They build good bonds with children which helps them settle quickly as they feel emotionally secure. Well-established partnerships with schools mean staff prepare children well for their next stage.”
To further improve the quality of the Early Years provision the provider should:
“Enhance the opportunities for multi-cultural learning during the times when children choose their own activities, such as through enriching the range of accessible resources that promote diversity and reflect a range of cultural background.
Maximise all of the learning opportunities at snack and meal times to build on children’s self-care, physical and independence skills.”
