Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Managers and staff develop warm and positive partnerships with parents, who speak highly of staff. Parents say they are well-informed of any changes and believe their children are safe and well-cared for. • Children enjoy their learning and develop very good levels of independence. Staff enable children to lead their own play and teach them valuable practical skills, such as serving their own meals. • Children learn how to keep themselves safe and healthy. For example, staff talk to them about the healthy foods they eat at lunchtime and the importance of daily exercise. Children learn to manage risks, such as sliding safely down the ’fireman’s pole’. • Children who prefer to learn outdoors benefit from a well-organised, stimulating environment that helps them to develop their skills in all the areas of learning. In particular, children develop their physical skills and enjoy daily active exercise. It is not yet outstanding because: • Although staff have good teaching skills, some specific teaching strategies, such as those which help to support children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, are not implemented across the nursery to ensure children’s learning is extended consistently.
