Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff recognise the uniqueness of each child. There are good key-person systems. Babies develop a strong sense of security and build close attachments to staff. Children demonstrate that they are settled and have a very positive attitude to learning. Staff effectively meet the needs of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language. All children make good progress given their starting points. Staff promote children’s physical development effectively. Children are handling equipment well and gaining good control of their bodies. They use large equipment skilfully and learn to balance and climb. Partnerships with parents, the local authority and outside agencies are well established. There are good two-way systems for sharing information about children’s needs and achievements. Staff keep parents well informed about children’s development. The manager reflects critically and has identified the strengths and weaknesses of the nursery. She has put together a detailed action plan and involved the parents in this process. She has implemented the recommendations from previous inspections. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not always extend older children’s communication and language skills. Staff do not always help older children to extend their concentration during story time.
