Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Staff gather comprehensive information from parents and use this information appropriately, such as to help identify children’s starting points in learning. The provider and staff successfully track children’s ongoing development and this helps children to progress well and close any emerging gaps in their learning. Staff help children to develop good independence. Children are keen to help with daily tasks and know how to set out cutlery and place names correctly at mealtimes. Parents speak highly of the well-established staff team. Many parents have been involved with the nursery for many years. They talk positively of the improvements they have seen, such as in the ways staff share information with them. Staff help children to know how to care for and appreciate the natural world. Children help to grow many plants and fruit and vegetables in the garden. When children find snails and spiders, staff encourage children to be gentle so as not to harm them. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently support all pre-school children to develop an interest in and enjoyment of books as many of the books are torn and are not appealing to children. At the start of the day, staff in the room for children aged two to three years do not consistently ensure the environment is stimulating enough to keep children continually motivated and interested in activities.
