The report states that "In the best provision, childcare providers have established routines, high expectations of children's behaviour and a good understanding of learning needs. They are also committed to their own development and make the most of the external support available."

Reflective practice and a willingness and motivation to constantly improved also featured in the report:

However, outcomes for children were no better than satisfactory in any of the providers where self-evaluation was inadequate."
