Parents are fully informed about their children's progress and receive regular

implemented effective risk assessments to keep the children safe during the
COVID-19 pandemic. Parents particularly praise staff for placing importance on
providing exciting activities that support children's confidence and self-esteem.
Staff support children's communication and language extremely well. They learn
basic sign language and share new words with children, connected with planned
activities or their interests. Staff use repetition and give children time to
respond, to support emerging speech for babies and toddlers. They work closely

help them make rapid progress in their learning.
Partnership working with other agencies to support families is highly effective. Staff
