Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers have high expectations of what each child can achieve in their learning and development. Staff work together very well as a coordinated team. They consistently use the setting’s effective systems to observe children’s play and check the progress children make in their learning. Children display high levels of independence, trust and curiosity. This is because staff implement the key-person system well. Children make friends and build strong and meaningful relationships with familiar adults. The staff team demonstrate a strong commitment to their work with children. They reflect on children’s interests to creatively plan the environment and imaginative activities. This inspires children to join in with experiences provided. Children are supported to learn through purposeful play. Staff are skilled in describing what is happening and modelling language as children play. This helps to extend children’s vocabulary, while promoting their understanding. Children benefit from successful communication methods used to involve parents in the nursery’s experiences. Staff regularly share ideas with parents about how they can develop their child’s active learning at home. It is not yet outstanding because: The arrangements for performance management are not strong enough to build on the good quality of teaching and practice. Staff do not place a high enough emphasis on promoting children’s understanding of healthy diets as part of a healthy lifestyle.
