Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has a clear vision for the nursery. She has good systems for evaluating the nursery and is aware of the strengths and areas for improvement. The views of staff, parents and children are used to support self-evaluation systems. This helps to develop the nursery and maintain continuous improvement. Partnerships with parents are positive. They speak highly of the nursery and are kept well informed of all relevant information concerning their child’s welfare and learning needs. Children are aware of the rules of the nursery. Staff provide clear guidance for children about what is acceptable behaviour. Children of different ages cooperate with each other and play together well. Children are very confident to explore and investigate and eager to benefit from the good range of opportunities provided in the nursery. As a result, they become motivated learners. Children are very happy, confident and settled in a stimulating environment. Staff are caring towards children and create a homely and welcoming atmosphere. This helps to support children’s emotional well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff offer solutions and guidance to children instead of using ways to help them think how to solve their own problems. Staff do not consistently support parents to share information about children’s abilities and development when they first start.
