Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good • A great strength of the nursery is the homely and welcoming environment. Parents speak highly of the caring and approachable staff and the good support their children receive. • Staff get to know the children well and plan effectively for their next steps in learning, contributing to children’s good progress from their starting points. • Staff provide a wide range of activities for children that engage, motivate and stimulate them in their learning. For example, children confidently combine resources, such as bubble bath, flour and sand to make ’gloop’. They show delight as they use their imaginative skills to act out making a witch’s potion. • Children are becoming eager learners. They enthusiastically cut their apple and pour their drinks as they develop their independence. • Children’s behaviour is good. They concentrate well during activities and are motivated to learn. Staff encourage good manners and help children to play cooperatively. • The manager does not routinely seek the views of parents to help her evaluate the quality of her provision and identify priorities for improvement effectively. • Staff do not consistently provide the most able children with enough challenging learning opportunities to help them make excellent progress.
