Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Following the last inspection, the two managers and the staff team have shown a strong commitment to making improvements to the nursery. They have worked hard and acted on suggestions from local authority advisers to raise the quality of teaching. Staff review the effectiveness of the changes made and the ongoing development plans identify ambitious ideas for further improvements. Children enjoy taking part in a variety of activities and experiences. They are curious and eager to explore, both indoors and outside. Children make good progress and effectively develop the skills they need for future learning. Children have developed secure attachments with the staff. Cuddles and hugs are shared and this nurturing approach helps young children settle and feel safe. Partnerships with parents are strong. Information is shared to ensure that key persons have a good all-round picture of children’s development. Staff give parents ideas for learning experiences they can offer their children at home. Parents also join nursery sessions to take part in activities with their children. It is not yet outstanding because: Although staff have effective links with the local school, they have not established highly successful partnerships with all the other early years settings that children attend to fully promote consistency in their learning.
