Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is outstanding The quality of teaching is outstanding. All staff precisely assess and skilfully plan for each child’s abilities, interests and future learning needs. Activities are relevant and extremely rewarding, promoting children’s purposeful learning and excellent progress in relation to their starting points. Children become highly skilled, confident, articulate and resourceful learners who are very well prepared for school. Babies and children flourish. Kind, attentive staff readily respond to children’s differing characters and interests. They sensitively help children to settle quickly and to form close attachments, and they soon become confident to explore their extremely inviting surroundings. Babies and children are sensitively helped to become socially confident and independent. They readily make choices, learn and play well on their own or with others and increasingly manage their personal care and hygiene by themselves. Children are fully safeguarded and protected from harm. The provider, managers and staff are conscientious and vigilant about checking children are safe and well. They take prompt appropriate action when there are any concerns about a child’s welfare and work professionally with other agencies and the families of vulnerable children. Excellent relationships with parents, other agencies and schools ensure children’s needs are accurately assessed and consistently met. From the time children start at nursery, parents and staff regularly discuss and plan how they will promote all aspects of their child’s care, learning and development.
