Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Parents’ comments are positive. They are pleased that their children are happy, well looked after and making good progress. Parents express how caring, open and supportive the manager and staff are. • Partnership working is a strength of the nursery. Information from parents is used effectively to inform assessments and the nursery’s improvement plans. The nursery works well with other professionals to support children’s learning and development. • The strong inclusive ethos held by staff guides their work with children. This ensures that children, including those with additional needs, are supported in their transitions into the nursery, when moving between rooms and in being ready for school. • Safeguarding arrangements within the setting are secure. Staff have a clear understanding of safeguarding and child protection issues. They promote children’s welfare by talking about sun safety, teaching them about making healthy choices and supporting them emotionally. • Children are happy and relaxed. They are curious as they explore the environment and enjoy joining in fun activities as they learn. • The nursery provides comprehensive information for parents and staff. However, this does not always reflect the good practice and arrangements within the setting, which may be confusing for them. • Some opportunities to extend children’s language and thinking are missed, resulting in children’s progress not being as rapid as it could have be.
