Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The manager and staff are passionate about providing high-quality early years experiences. The manager considers the views of staff, parents and children when evaluating the success of any changes made and when planning for the future. • Children demonstrate a highly mature understanding of how to deal with their emotions and feelings. For example, when children feel upset, they find and look at pictures of people who are special to them. This has an excellent calming effect on children. • The enthusiastic and well-qualified staff provide excellent support for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Strong partnerships between parents and external agencies support children with SEND to make good progress from their individual starting points. • The key-person system is highly effective. Staff make an outstanding contribution to meeting the holistic needs of individual children and their families. Sensitive arrangements are made to ensure children settle with ease. Staff provide parents and children with information to take home. This helps to support attachments effectively. • Parents are very complimentary about the quality of the nursery. For example, one parent said, ’I would highly recommend the nursery to others. Staff are so warm and go above and beyond to support my child’s individual needs.’ • Occasionally, staff do not maximise opportunities to extend children’s learning to take account of their unique learning styles and preferences to help them make the best possible progress. • At times, staff do not plan precisely to make the best use of the outdoor area for children who prefer to play outdoors.
