Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding All children, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, make outstanding progress in all areas of learning.

This is due to the excellent arrangements for assessing, tracking and planning for children’s individual progress and the advanced skills of highly qualified and inspirational staff. Children have superb opportunities to progress with all aspects of communication and language, letters and sounds, and their personal, social and emotional development. They are supported in their learning by staff who are trained to levels of high expertise.

Staff provide an outstanding play and learning environment for children. Great thought is given to the way activities, such as role play and the outdoors, provide children with inspiration and challenge. This is all the more impressive as staff have to set up and pack away the premises each day.

Children’s health, safety and well-being are exceedingly well supported and protected. Children establish exemplary relationships with one another and with staff. Their behaviour is excellent.

Children are very independent and emotionally secure. Staff forge outstanding partnerships with parents and the numerous outside agencies involved with individual children. Parents are fully involved in children’s learning.

They say they are ’amazed at how much children learn’. The nursery is exceptionally well led and managed. Procedures for recruiting and retaining high-quality staff, along with the professional development support staff receive to build on their expertise, are highly impressive.
