Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The inspirational, enthusiastic and committed leadership team and staff provide the highest quality care and learning to enable children to reach their potential. Leaders and staff evaluate the provision highly effectively. Leaders provide staff with excellent support, coaching and training to maintain consistently high-quality teaching. This ensures that all children, including those who speak English as an additional language, make excellent and sustained progress from their starting points. Safeguarding is of the highest priority. Leaders set high expectations for staff, parents, visitors and children to ensure that children are always safe. Staff are well trained, kept up to date with requirements and have secure knowledge of how to safeguard children. Partnerships with parents are outstanding. Staff engage parents well in their children’s learning both within the setting and at home. Parents are exceptionally positive about the high-quality care their children are given and the excellent progress they make. Children are extremely happy and settled at the nursery and their behaviour is excellent. Staff are exceptionally caring and sensitive in helping children to form trusting and secure relationships. Their emotional well-being is well supported. The extremely warm, welcoming, safe and secure learning environment is of high quality, exemplified through beautiful displays of children’s work and helpful information for staff and parents. Photographs of children with their key person are used throughout the nursery, such as on coat pegs and drinking cups, so that the children feel a sense of belonging and know who their key person is. The highly stimulating learning environment, indoors and out, offers children a wide range of exciting and challenging learning opportunities. Children explore with great enthusiasm; they gain confidence and independence as they test out new skills.
