Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Parents comment positively about the staff and the warm, caring environment they provide for children. Babies enjoy the close contact they have with staff, demonstrating that they are emotionally secure. Staff work well with other professionals to support children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. They put targeted plans in place to support children’s individual needs. The manager supports her staff well through supervision and appraisal meetings. Staff review their practice and identify training opportunities that helps to maintain their good teaching. Staff plan activities to help children achieve in their learning. They play alongside children and ask them a good range of questions, helping children to develop their thinking skills. Staff help children to learn about their local community. For example, they take babies to a shop to buy fruit to taste. Staff take older children to museums to help them learn about the history and culture of the city. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently find out about children’s interests and achievements from all other pre-schools and nurseries they attend, to help complement and build on children’s learning and development. Although the manager monitors the progress made by groups of children over the age of two-years-old, she does not do the same for children below this age.
