Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The quality of teaching is good. Staff observe children regularly and pay close attention to their interests. They plan activities and experiences that appeal to children. This helps children to become engaged and make good progress in their learning. Parents are very happy with the standards of care and learning. They contribute to assessments of children’s learning from the outset and welcome ideas for home activities, helping to reinforce and extend the learning that happens in the nursery. The management team is committed to continuous improvement. They review all aspects of their provision and seek feedback from parents, children and other professionals. They use their findings to plan and prioritise future developments. This contributes to their capacity to build upon their already strong practice. Staff are attentive and offer children plenty of praise and encouragement. Children form warm, trusting relationships with them, helping to promote their emotional well-being. They demonstrate high levels of confidence and self-esteem. Staff have developed successful working relationships with other professionals. These help to ensure that children’s individual care, learning and development needs are carefully considered and met effectively. It is not yet outstanding because: Sometimes, staff do not promote children’s communication and language skills to the highest possible level. They do not always give children enough time to think and respond to their skilful questions and prompts. Managers are not yet making the best possible use of information gathered from assessments to track the progress of different groups of children.
