Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The children's rooms, including bathrooms, are well organised.

Staff arrange good-quality toys and displays to create inviting areas which engage children in purposeful learning. Children's progress is carefully monitored. The manager works closely with staff to ensure children receive targeted support to identify and fill gaps in children's learning.

Staff work closely with parents and other professionals to understand and meet the needs of children who have special educational needs and disabilities. Staff successfully promote a love of reading. They use books and storytelling to engage children in a wide range of learning.

The teaching of mathematics is a strength. Babies learn about shape as they place plastic balls into bun trays and jars. Three-year-old children match shapes as they replace toys on silhouettes.

Babies and children are self-assured, confident, keen to explore and motivated to learn. It is not yet outstanding because: The professional development of staff is not linked closely enough to their individual learning targets to raise the quality of teaching to the highest level. A new way to record children's progress and increase the good opportunities for parents to exchange information about their child's learning is not fully embedded.
