Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The provider is very ambitious. She has thorough plans for the development of the nursery. The provider actively seeks the opinions of staff, children and parents to inform her action planning. Staff have a good understanding of how children learn. They use what they know about children’s interests to plan interesting learning experiences for each child. Children have opportunities to develop across all areas of learning. Leaders monitor the range of activities provided effectively. This enables them to quickly identify areas where children may require additional support. Children behave well. They are responsive to the warm and welcoming staff who are positive role models for children. Staff know children well. They gather useful information from parents when children first begin attending and as they move through the nursery. Children feel confident to approach staff for support or a cuddle when they are feeling tired or upset. Children are well supported as they prepare to move through the nursery and on to school. They are encouraged to talk about their feelings and staff help them to get to know their new key person or teacher. It is not yet outstanding because: The provider’s evaluations of staff practice are not sufficiently focused to provide highly effective and targeted professional development and support. Staff, sometimes, disrupt children’s play to adhere to a daily routine or move away from planned activities when children are engaged in them.
