Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team and staff monitor and track children’s progress closely. This enables them to quickly identify any gaps in children’s development and provide individual support to help them successfully move on to the next stage of their learning. Information about the nursery, staff and children’s activities are displayed throughout. Staff share information on a daily basis to keep parents up to date with children’s learning and care needs. Staff ensure that strong relationships are established with children and their families. For example, babies are excited to talk to their key person about family members as they look at their photos on the wall. This helps to effectively support children’s emotional well-being. Children behave very well. Older children demonstrate excellent manners and show care and concern for one another as they play. For example, a group of three-year-old children demonstrate their ability to take turns and share construction toys as they play together. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff miss some opportunities that arise to build on children’s learning of new vocabulary. On occasions, large-group times are not always well organised to maintain the children’s interests and motivation.
