Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager and her team are highly reflective practitioners and evaluate all aspects of the nursery regularly. This includes gathering the views of parents and children. This helps staff to identify areas they can improve to continually benefit all children. Staff provide stimulating learning environments, both indoors and outside. Children build their confidence as they explore and make choices for themselves. The forest school outdoor activities give children extensive opportunities to learn to recognise dangers and understand about boundaries. Staff get to know the children well and talk confidently about their likes, dislikes, interests and stage of development. They involve parents in the initial assessment to ensure that they are able to meet children’s care needs and plan for their learning. Partnerships with parents are excellent. Parents speak highly of the nursery. They comment on the approachable staff and about how their children enjoy attending. Staff are very successful in engaging parents in their children’s ongoing learning. Children follow good hygiene routines. They experience sociable mealtimes as they sit alongside their peers and staff. Children enjoy a broad range of nutritious snacks and healthy meals. They have daily opportunities to be active in the outdoor area. This helps to promote their good health and supports their physical well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasions, staff overlook opportunities to extend children’s thinking skills to higher levels.
