Summary of key findings for parents

This is a provision that requires improvement • The quality of teaching does not always stimulate and challenge children’s learning and development. As a result, not all children achieve as well as they could. • Supervision procedures to monitor the quality of staff teaching are not effective. • Older children using the pre-school room and outdoor areas are not always effectively supported to make independent choices and determine their own learning. • Staff have not considered ways to make the most of outdoor areas to enhance learning opportunities for children who prefer to be outside. It has the following strengths • Children are developing appropriate emotional attachments with the staff. They demonstrate that they feel safe and secure. • Staff develop suitable partnerships with parents. They spend time getting to know the children and their families before they start at the nursery. This supports continuity in the children’s care and development. • Children are encouraged to be kind to one another, to share and take their turn. They are praised for their efforts and achievements, which supports their confidence.
