‘This provision is good’

‘Children receive a warm welcome from the friendly and caring staff. They settle quickly, and staff have developed strong bonds with them. Staff know the children well and take into account each child’s personality when settling them in the morning.’

‘Staff have a secure knowledge of safeguarding procedures and their role to keep children safe.’

‘Staff offer children lots of praise and encouragement when completing tasks. This helps to build children’s self-esteem and confidence. Staff think carefully about how they can support all children to have the same opportunities and experiences to ensure that they are ready for the next stage in their learning and to be successful learners. ‘

‘There are very secure attachments between staff and children which consistently promotes children’s well-being.’

‘Children’s communication and language are promoted well. For instance, staff use good questioning skills to get children to think of their own ideas, and they give plenty of time for children to think and respond. Staff ensure that children hear a range of words to extend their vocabulary.’
