Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff’s good teaching skills motivate children to learn. For example, early literacy and mathematical skills are promoted as children join in with stories and songs and learn to count. Children make good progress in their learning. Staff act as positive role models. They manage children’s behaviour effectively and talk about the importance of safety throughout children’s activities. Children enjoy a variety of nutritious snacks and home-made meals, which helps to promote their good health. Self-evaluation is effective and the manager shows commitment to developing the nursery. She uses her qualifications and experience to skilfully evaluate the quality of the nursery. This helps benefit children and results in a service that is continually improving. Children are warmly welcomed into a friendly, stimulating environment where they can safely explore, both indoors and outside. This supports children’s all round emotional development and confidence. It is not yet outstanding because: Initial information gathered from parents about children’s prior skills and capabilities is not always comprehensive enough to enable staff to support children’s progress as well as possible from the start. Occasionally, staff do not always consider how children of different ages can be fully involved when taking part in planned activities together.
