Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Staff understand and respect that children learn in many different ways.

Babies and children are immersed in purposeful activity while they explore and experiment. Children work together, finding different ways to transport soapy water, in order to wash ride-on toys in the garden. Self-evaluation is used very effectively.

Staff have reviewed and improved the way in which they observe and assess children's development. This has enabled staff to sharpen the focus of children's next steps in learning and strengthen their high-quality teaching. Staff in the baby room are intuitive in knowing what support babies need.

Babies follow their... own routines for sleep and are extremely content and relaxed. They demonstrate their close relationships with staff as they lay their heads on the shoulder of their key person when they become tired and cuddle up for reassurance. Exceptionally high-quality leadership drives an ambitious and focused staff team.

Highly effective supervision meetings focus on staff's continual professional development. Staff feel valued and respected, helping them to feel enthused about their work. Staff turnover is low and many are very long serving.

They effectively share their wealth of experience with the newer recruits. Providers and managers use a wide variety of highly effective and imaginative ways to continually enhance staff's knowledge, understanding and practice. A comprehensive induction programme helps to ensure that new staff quickly adopt and follow the robust procedures and the ethos followed within the nursery.

Children are encouraged to take on tasks that challenge them. They climb a low ladder to collect fruit from the tree and play hide and seek in the hedgerow. Children are becoming competent individuals who are able to assess small risks and take appropriate action to keep themselves safe.
