Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The management team is inspirational. The team members are passionate about the care and education they provide and they motivate staff to aim for excellence. Staff work closely with management and they all reflect on their practices to identify areas for development. The outcomes for all children, including those who speak English as an additional language, are continually improving. Parents are extremely happy with the care provided. They especially like the strong attachments their children have with their key person. The parent representatives meet with staff regularly to share and discuss ideas and views voiced by parents. Parents state that they are exceptionally well informed about their child’s progress and receive regular updates. The nursery works extremely well with other professionals to close identified gaps in children’s learning and development. Together they provide specialised individual support. Well-qualified staff demonstrate an excellent understanding of how children learn and develop. They provide a highly stimulating learning environment, both indoors and outdoors. Children enjoy looking at the bug garden outside and explore nature in their Forest School sessions at the local fields and park areas. The nursery has an exceptional focus on developing children’s language and communication skills. Children happily join in with action songs and interactive story sessions. Staff talk to the children during play about what they are doing and are very effective at extending their language through the introduction of new words.
