Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Teaching by staff places emphasis on children developing confidence, emotional security and self-help skills. This supports children’s readiness for their next steps in learning. Care practices effectively promote children’s physical and emotional well-being. Children make good progress from their starting points, including children who speak English as an additional language and those who receive additional funding. The nursery is highly committed to enabling children to experience environments and activities outside of their immediate area and community. Parents help staff to establish children’s starting points in development when they join the nursery. The nursery provides information and resources to help parents promote their children’s learning and well-being. Parents receive regular updates about their children’s progress and share what they notice about this with staff. The nursery has well-established partnerships with other professionals, settings and agencies. Managers work effectively to secure any additional support needed for children and their families. This helps to promote continuity for children. Staff are strongly encouraged to enhance their skills through gaining further qualifications. Managers make effective use of what they observe about staff’s teaching and the children’s learning to accurately focus training and mentoring. This contributes to promoting children’s good progress. It is not yet outstanding because: Activities where children are taught as a group are not always organised so that all children have the best possible learning opportunities at these times. Not all opportunities are taken to raise the quality of the staff’s teaching to the highest possible levels.
