Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The highly driven leadership team use their impressive knowledge of the ways that children learn best. They continually review and plan how to further improve the provision for children. They are determined to establish new ways of working as the nursery continues to expand.

• Highly impressive facilities, both inside and outside, are beginning to be used well to help children develop strong, creative and investigative impulses which support independent thinking and learning. • The varied curriculum captures children's interest and helps to ensure children are absorbed in meaningful opportunities for learning throughout the day. This has a positive impact... on children's behaviour.

However, teaching is not consistently of the highest quality. Newer and less experienced staff are not consistently guided to plan activities that challenge all children to achieve highly. • The high numbers of nurturing staff prioritise children's emotional well-being.

There is good support for children as they make the moves through the very large nursery and on to school. • An emphasis on outdoor provision contributes impressively to children's good health and physical development. This enables children to play and learn in different ways.

However, staff do not consistently implement rigorous hygiene procedures which help to prevent the spread of infection, particularly when children share sleeping equipment. • Parents and carers hold the nursery in high regard. They develop strong, trusting relationships with staff which underpins the clear and supportive communication between nursery and home.
