Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children arrive at nursery happy and eager to learn. They access a range of exciting and well-planned activities. This supports them to make good progress in their learning. Partnerships with parents are strong. Parents are highly positive about the care and learning their children receive. They use the range of resources in the lending library to support their children’s learning at home. Children form secure attachments with their familiar adult. Young children approach adults for a reassuring hug and babies snuggle up close to adults to share a picture book or to play ’peek a boo’. Older children enthusiastically take part in group discussions. They put up their hand so others know they have something to share. They talk about what they learn through nursery themes, such as ‘Black History Month’. It is not yet outstanding because: Leaders and managers are in the process of supporting room leaders to use the system for checking the quality of provision to ensure practice is consistently of a very high standard. During some routine times, adults do not routinely make the most of opportunities to help children develop their independence, particularly in the pre-school room. On occasion adults do not extend and challenge children’s speaking skills further. For example, they do not let younger children respond to one question before asking the next.
