Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The early years coordinator and supervisor have made significant improvements and consistently check the nursery’s provision meets requirements. Robust staff supervision and training ensure they are knowledgeable and skilled. Accurate assessment and planning underpin their good teaching and children make good progress. Effective partnerships with parents ensure staff understand and meet children’s needs. Parents are well informed about their children’s routines, activities and achievements. Parents and staff successfully plan together how children’s next steps for learning are to be followed up at nursery and at home. Staff interact well with children, who eagerly join in and concentrate. Staff skilfully promote children’s communication skills, including helping children to learn English. Staff encourage children to listen and to take turns in speaking. During lively discussions children imaginatively express themselves and use a wide vocabulary. The kind, attentive staff reassure and encourage babies and children, who soon settle in to the safe, comfortable and inviting surroundings. Children readily help themselves from a great selection of books, toys and resources that stimulates their purposeful play. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff carefully track the progress of individual children. However, checking and reviewing the progress of groups of children is at an early stage. Not enough information is available yet to influence planning and teaching in order to raise children’s attainment even higher. Staff do not always successfully help children to negotiate space and to develop control and skill in moving in different ways.
