What is it like to attend this early years setting?
The provision is good
Children arrive happy and leave their parents with confidence. They all settle
quickly and are extremely eager to start their day. Children are inquisitive learners
and demonstrate high levels of engagement. The confidence and independence
that children demonstrate when exploring their environment are impressive. Staff
build superb relationships with the children and are active participants in children's
play.
Staff ignite children's curiosity through the rich and varied experiences they offer.
Children are motivated to join in and engage with these meaningful activities. They
especially enjoy being outdoors and exploring the many opportunities with
enthusiasm. For example, children's excitement is infectious as they master the
climbing wall in order to observe dog walkers on the local field.
Children have lots of opportunities to learn new skills and use a variety of tools. For
example, they use dough and a range of cutters to make 'cakes' for the staff.
Cakes are carefully put into the role-play oven, and children wait patiently for the
'cake to cook'. This helps them to develop their physical and creative skills. Staff
know the children and their interests very well, which is reflected in the strong
attachments children have with them. This supports children's emotional well-
being.
Staff and children take regular trips out, visiting the local farm, theme park and
school library and taking walks in nature. Children are polite, for example, they
spontaneously say 'excuse me' to gain staff members' attention.
What does the early years setting do well and what does it
need to do better?
n The manager is a reflective and enthusiastic professional. She confidently leads
a team of very dedicated staff, which continually makes positive changes to the
environment and teaching. She carries out regular staff observations, some of
which are videoed for a more in-depth analysis. This has a positive impact on
outcomes for children. The manager places a significant emphasis on staff well-
being. Staff benefit from regular meetings and targeted training, for example on
behaviour management and using adrenaline auto-injectors.
n Children take part in activities that are planned effectively to build on their
existing knowledge. For example, children use magnets to find metal objects
around the room after building with magnetic blocks. Staff ask a range of
questions, which children answer confidently. However, these questions are not
yet extending the children's critical thinking skills and developing their ideas.
This means that children's knowledge and understanding are not always
enhanced to the highest possible level.
Inspection report: Little Bookham & Effingham Preschool
20 June 2023 2
n Children's behaviour is exemplary, and staff are excellent role models. Children
understand boundaries and rules. They respect the resources they have in the
pre-school and help to take care of them. They hold books carefully and put
them back on the shelf where they belong when finished with them. Children
respond immediately when they hear the music to capture their attention, giving
them a warning that it is nearly time to tidy away. They then enthusiastically join
in clearing the room and packing away the toys.
n Children are beginning to recognise the similarities and differences between
themselves and others through a range of enjoyable activities. For example, a
visitor came to the pre-school in her sari to show the children the bright, vibrant
colours. However, staff need to consider how they can extend children's
experiences when learning about cultures and diversity in the world.
n Staff confidently support children's early language development. They engage
children in meaningful conversations during play. Staff introduce new language
when they talk with children, read stories and play games with them. For
example, children are captivated by the wooden rainbow, taking it apart and
rocking the colourful bands before reassembling in size order. Children eagerly
participate as staff model words such as 'smooth', 'multicoloured', 'arch' and
'colourful'.
n Staff support children to learn how they can live healthy lifestyles. Children are
provided with a range of balanced meals during snack and lunchtime.
n Parents speak very highly about the pre-school. They feel well supported by the
staff. Parents appreciate that staff keep them informed about their children's
progress and provide suggestions as to how they can continue to support the
children's learning at home. They enjoy taking home learning packs, which
enable children to practise new skills, such as developing their finger muscles by
adding pegs to a numbered hedgehog.
Safeguarding
The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
Staff have a good understanding of their roles and responsibilities to keep children
safe. They are familiar with the signs and symptoms that may indicate that a child
may be more vulnerable to abuse or neglect. Staff receive regular training and are
clear about the importance of making prompt referrals should they have any
concerns about a child. The premises are secure, and staff carry out effective risk
assessments, indoors and outdoors, to minimise risks to children and keep them
safe. Children are well supported in managing risks, such as how to use climbing
equipment safely and building obstacles with heavy planks.
What does the setting need to do to improve?
To further improve the quality of the early years provision, the provider
should:
Inspection report: Little Bookham & Effingham Preschool

n increase the use of effective staff interactions that extend children's critical
thinking skills, enabling them to make even better progress
n build on the already good activities to help children form a greater knowledge
and understanding about diversity and other cultures.
