Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Babies and children develop strong bonds with their key persons and form good relationships with all staff. They settle quickly into the nursery. They are confident and know the routines of the nursery well. Children behave well. Staff set consistent boundaries for children’s behaviour. This helps children to feel secure and there is a calm atmosphere throughout the nursery. Staff observe the children and are quick to identify any gaps in their development. Children who have special educational needs and disabilities are well cared for and staff are very attentive to their needs. Managers monitor staff practice and evaluate the impact on children’s learning and development. Staff work closely with parents to identify children’s learning needs on entry to the nursery. They carry out a progress check for children aged between two and three years. This helps them to recognise younger children’s needs and the next stages in their learning and development. Staff use the knowledge and skills gained through training well, to provide effective activities that support children’s learning. They seek regular training opportunities to continuously enhance their professional development. It is not yet outstanding because: Management has yet to embed newly introduced systems for evaluating the progress made by different groups of children, in order to identify variations in learning and raise children’s achievements even higher.
