Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The management team is passionate about the ongoing development of the nursery and improving outcomes for children. Managers have robust systems of evaluation which they use to continually develop the setting. Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are offered exceptional support. The nursery has developed strong partnerships with local agencies to help ensure that children receive the support they need to progress in their learning. Parents talk highly of the nursery and the support that they are given by staff. Parents are provided with regular feedback about their children’s progress. Staff are extremely attentive and caring, which helps children to settle very quickly and feel emotionally secure. All children and families are welcomed, respected and valued. The children develop an excellent knowledge of nature and the world around them. For instance, they enjoy learning about how to care for snails, observe their movement and draw images of them to display in the nursery. It is not yet outstanding because: Sometimes, staff do not use all resources effectively to further extend children’s interest and understanding of mathematics. The systems for monitoring the progress of different groups of children are not fully embedded.
