Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The new management team is committed and passionate in continually developing the nursery to its best potential. This helps to ensure planned improvements are achieved and outcomes for children are good. Staff provide a caring and inclusive learning environment where children feel safe and secure. Children thoroughly enjoy their time at the nursery and engage well in a wide range of exciting activities. Children have daily opportunities to further develop their physical skills and access fresh air as they use the naturally resourced outdoor areas. Staff know how children learn. From their interactions with them and their observations, they accurately assess how well children are progressing. Children behave very well. Staff give them lots of praise to acknowledge their efforts and encourage them. Staff help children develop good social skills, such as sharing and taking turns. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently ensure they keep precise records on information provided by parents about their children. Staff do not routinely ensure they are fully aware of all children’s personal and development details to promote greater consistency in supporting all their individual needs.
