Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Leaders and staff effectively identify their strengths and areas for improvement. Leaders use their evaluations well to make changes that benefit the children. For example, children have more opportunities to learn outdoors since the development of the garden and the resources provided. Staff are caring and considerate towards young children’s emotional needs. Children settle quickly and develop good secure relationships with the staff throughout the nursery. Staff gain a good understanding of each child’s learning needs. They plan activities that are exciting and interesting, to motivate children to learn. All children make good progress from their starting points. The environment is stimulating and well organised. Children can make their own choices in their play. Children behave well considering their ages. They learn to share and take turns with the resources, with little support from the staff. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not use their partnerships with parents effectively to share children’s achievements and to involve them in supporting their child’s learning at home. Leaders and staff do not provide children with opportunities to experience and learn about the lives and cultures of people from backgrounds different to their own.
