Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The determined management team evaluates the provision rigorously and plans exceptionally well to achieve excellence in all aspects of children’s learning and care. Babies form strong and secure bonds with their key persons and benefit from consistent opportunities to adapt smoothly to the routines at the nursery. Highly effective partnerships with schools help to support a smooth process when children transfer. Parents speak highly of the supportive staff and how well they meet their children’s individual needs. Older children are highly creative and use their imagination exceptionally well to build on their play ideas. For example, they pretend to travel in an aeroplane and assign roles to each other, such as flight staff and passengers. The pretend passengers ask ’do you have any drinks?’ and the pretend staff say ’we have in the café’. The manager and the staff work extremely well as a team to monitor children’s progress and plan targeted support for individual children to help them catch up. They provide excellent opportunities for children who speak English as an additional language to build rapidly on their communication skills. All children make exceptional progress. Staff provide exciting resources and activities outdoors to help motivate children to play in the fresh air. Babies eagerly explore soft-play equipment and older children have lots of fun as they exercise. For instance, staff model actions, such as star jumps and running on the spot, and children smile and laugh as they copy actions.
