Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The capable and enthusiastic manager uses her good knowledge as an early years professional to mentor the staff team and help maintain high standards of learning and care throughout the nursery. Children are happy, confident and very self-assuredThey form strong bonds with the staff, who are warm and attentive. Children learn to do things for themselves and they behave well. Staff accurately assess children’s development and note current interests. They provide a wide range of stimulating and enjoyable outings and activities, tailored to each child’s needs. Staff teach effectively so children are eager to learn and make good progress. Parents play an active role in their children’s learning. They routinely share information with staff so there is consistency in their children’s care and development. Parents value the useful guidance that the nursery provides, for example, on how to support children’s speech development. It is not yet outstanding because: Sometimes, staff do not give children enough time to question, think through and experiment before providing answers themselves or moving on to the next activity. Senior staff do not always make sure that children’s special member of staff is with them when they first start at nursery or change rooms, to help them settle as quickly as possible.
