Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is goodnThe newly appointed manager has a clear vision for the nursery.

She has identified areas of practice to develop further, such as parent handovers. She has been warmly welcomed by practitioners. They speak highly of the support she has given them in the short time she has been at the nursery.

nPractitioners know their key children well and how they like to learn. They prepare interesting activities that motivate children. For example, babies use wheeled toys to make marks with paint and older children learn to recognise letters in the environment as they hunt for dinosaurs.

nChildren happily arrive at nursery and take pleasure in self-regist...ration. Babies show delight in receiving cuddles from practitioners, while older children eagerly find their friends and quickly settle into their chosen play.nChildren make good progress from their starting points at the nursery.

Those with special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported well by specialist practitioners. This helps to develop their specific needs and their ongoing learning. nParents comment that their children's individual learning needs are met well.

They speak positively about the partnership working with other agencies, such as speech and language therapists, which benefits their children's care and learning. nPractitioners do not routinely collect information from parents about their children's current development when they first start at the nursery. This has an impact on the effectiveness of planning for individual children.

nAs children transition through the nursery rooms, the arrangements are not managed consistently well. Therefore, practitioners are not fully aware of children's precise interests from the outset.nSome of the staff team are new to the nursery and therefore have not had the opportunity to become familiar with routines and procedures.
