Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Managers have an exceptionally thorough knowledge of how to safeguard children and manage any concerns that staff may have about children’s welfare or safety. Staff are extremely well trained in childhood health, first aid, and in nurturing positive behaviour in children of all ages. They supervise children diligently to keep them safe. Children make excellent levels of progress in their learning and development. Room teams know children exceptionally well, celebrate their daily achievements, and plan exciting opportunities for them to investigate and master new skills. Staff are extremely attentive in supporting children who have special educational needs. For example, they work closely with parents and other professionals to ensure children make excellent progress from their unique starting points. Parents greatly appreciate the range of ways that staff share information with them. They say that this helps them to know how to link with and extend their children’s play and learning. Children quickly learn how to care for themselves and their environment, for example, as they use knives, move between areas of the nursery or recycle materials. Staff use the company safety mascot, ’Candy Floss’, to great advantage. Staff work closely with parents, for instance, as they use purposely designed programmes to nurture children’s skills in reading, writing and mathematics in the run up to school entry. Staff prepare children extremely well for their move to school.
