Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Leaders have made good progress in the provision’s practice since their previous inspection and have a good understanding of their roles. Leaders have implemented effective self-evaluation tools to support their ongoing progress and identification of weaknesses. Leaders seek the views of parents and staff to help identify priorities for improvement. Staff develop good partnerships with parents and keep them informed about their children’s progress. They implement effective ways to involve parents in their children’s learning. For example, by inviting parents to read stories or talk to children about making costumes. Staff support children to develop positive social skills. For example, children help each other to squirt the soap into their hands during handwashing routines. Staff encourage children to be independent, for example, by serving their own food at mealtimes and dressing themselves for outside play. Children make good progress from their starting points and are well developed for the next stages in their learning, such as moving between rooms in the nursery or their eventual move on to school. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not yet effectively monitor the progress groups of children make to fully support them to target teaching as precisely as possible. Staff do not consistently model good hygiene procedure to help children understand how to prevent the spread of infection.
