Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The ambitious manager successfully motivates a forward thinking and ambitious team. She has an accurate understanding of where the nursery is most successful and has a clear focus on future priorities to secure ongoing improvement. High-quality training and monitoring have a positive impact on outcomes for children. • Staff provide engaging activities that successfully meet the needs of individual children and ignite their motivation to learn. They accurately assess children’s next steps in learning and work effectively with parents to meet these together. Overall, all children make good progress in their learning. • Staff give children’s emotional well-being the highest priority. They offer children exceptionally warm and affectionate care, enabling them to form very secure emotional attachments with their key person. • The special educational needs coordinator and manager work very effectively with other agencies to ensure children receive the individual support they need from an early stage. The manager uses early intervention group times very effectively to ensure that teaching is precisely targeted to help all children reach their full potential. • The nursery makes an outstanding contribution to the local community. Leaders organise drop-in groups for families of children with additional needs that effectively raise parents’ confidence in supporting their children’s ongoing learning at home. • On occasions, staff are quick to provide solutions and do not encourage children to negotiate and solve problems for themselves to support their critical thinking.
