Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The leadership and management team has made significant improvements to the nursery’s practice since the last inspection. It has worked strongly with other early years professionals and as a team to make effective changes that have improved the outcomes for children. The managers and staff have a good understanding of how children learn, and provide a welcoming, calm, well-resourced and stimulating learning environment. Children are eager to play and learn indoors and outdoors. Staff use clear, regular and accurate assessments to monitor children’s progress precisely. Staff use their good understanding of children’s development to plan stimulating activities that help all children to make strong progress. Children behave well. Staff interact and manage their behaviour positively and meet children’s emotional needs well. Children show respect, respond well to simple instructions and show high levels of self-esteem. Staff develop strong partnerships with parents, other agencies and early years settings. They work together closely to meet children’s care, learning and developmental needs. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not take all opportunities to extend fully children’s information and communication technology skills. Management does not seek more detailed views from parents about the provision, to help it focus more precisely on promoting the best possible outcomes for children.
