Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Staff are kind and encouraging, helping children to grow in confidence and feel valued.
Children are happy and well settled. They have made effective attachments with their key persons. Children enjoy taking part in a variety of activities and experiences.
They are curious and eager to explore, both indoors and outside. Children make good progress and effectively develop the skills they need for future learning. The nursery is led by a strong and ambitious manager.
She is passionate about providing high-quality childcare and has a clear direction for the nursery's future development. Partnerships with parents are good. Parents are encourag...ed to share children's achievements from home and staff use this information to complement children's learning.
Staff keep parents well informed of their children's time at the nursery and provide information on how parents can support children's learning at home. Children's behaviour is good. They respond well to the clear rules and boundaries which staff implement consistently, helping them to feel safe and secure.
It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, adults do not use a wide enough range of teaching methods to encourage children to think deeply and express their own thoughts and ideas. Individual children's learning is not always meticulously planned for. Information from observations and assessments is sometimes not used well enough to make sure all children are challenged to make as much progress in their learning as possible.
