Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The key staff are well qualified and experienced. Teaching is good and, on occasions, outstanding. Staff provide a very rich range of interesting and exciting resources to help children freely explore, discover and learn. The committed staff team works extremely well with the teaching staff at the onsite school nursery. This helps them support and continue children’s learning and ensures what they offer complements learning that takes place elsewhere. Staff work well with parents to identify what children enjoy and identify any gaps in their learning. This close partnership helps parents and staff work together to help children catch up quickly. Staff place a high priority on fostering children’s personal, social and emotional development. The settling-in period is tailored to meet each child’s emotional needs and staff meet their care needs well. The determined manager has an accurate overview of the service provided. There are clear actions plans in place to build on the success already achieved. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not have the very highest expectations of the most able children to extend even further their learning about weight, capacity and measures, as well as people and communities. Systems to evaluate the impact of staff’s practice do not identify precisely how more of the teaching can be highly effective.
