Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff effectively share information with parents about children’s interests and learning in the nursery and at home. This supports a united approach to children’s learning. The management team monitors the progress made by groups of children in the nursery. This helps staff to identify any gaps in learning. Staff implement effective strategies to enhance children’s communication and language and mathematical development. Most staff are qualified and the quality of teaching is good with some being outstanding. Children are motivated to learn and thoroughly enjoy the interactions they have with staff and others. Staff listen to children’s views, helping them to feel valued and appreciated. Staff provide children with opportunities to develop their independence. For example, babies select resources to support their interests and older children wash their hands prior to eating and pour their own drinks. It is not yet outstanding because: Although the manager regularly evaluates practice, she does not always identify precisely enough the support some staff need to make changes that will ensure outstanding practice is achieved consistently across all areas of the nursery. Staff not always use assessment findings to plan very precisely for children’s next steps in learning. This means that children are not highly challenged to promote consistently rapid progress.
