Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The nursery manager is exceptionally knowledgeable about her role and responsibilities. Since her appointment she has been extremely successful in making expertly targeted and highly effective improvements. She inspires the staff team to aim for the highest possible standards. Partnerships with parents are outstanding. The manager and staff are extremely proactive and successful in engaging parents and involving them fully in their children’s learning. For example, parents attend events at the nursery and take home ’learning packs’ that provide them with ideas on how to support their children’s development. Staff are extremely attentive to children’s individual needs and get to know them very well. Children feel happy and secure and form very strong bonds with the nursery staff. Children enjoy a broad and varied range of interesting activities, firmly based around topics and themes that appeal to their individual interests. They make extremely good progress in their development. Teaching is of a very strong standard and staff have high expectations for what all children can achieve. When individual children, or groups of children, need extra support, this is quickly identified and effective measures put in place. Staff work closely with other professionals to skilfully identify and close gaps in children’s learning.
