Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The actions and recommendations from the previous inspection have been addressed appropriately. Detailed action planning and support from the local authority have helped to raise the overall quality of the nursery. Daily risk assessments help staff ensure all areas of the nursery used by children are safe and secure. The risk assessment process is continuously reviewed and should any incidents occur appropriate, prompt action is taken. The learning environment indoors and outdoors is well organised. There is a wide range of good quality resources that children access independently and that are suited to their interests. Children’s behaviour is good. They respond well to the clear rules and boundaries that staff implement. Staff provide children with a lot of support and praise. Children have secure attachments with the adults caring for them. The staff have developed good links with other early years providers and the schools children move on to. They work closely with childminders and teachers to achieve continuity in learning and care. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasions, staff do not give children enough time to think about how they want to respond to questions and to share their own ideas. Staff do not support parents consistently enough to guide their child’s learning at home.
