Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children establish extremely strong attachments to staff, who are warmly attentive and quickly respond should children need reassurance. The very effective key-person system ensures that all children are emotionally well prepared for their next stage in learning and move on to school.

Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and children who speak English as an additional language receive highly effective support. Exceptionally strong relationships with parents and other professionals help to ensure consistency in planning activities that help children make the best possible progress. Children are very happy and settled in this nursery.

Their behaviour is excellent and staff teach them to be kind to each other. Staff promote healthy eating and lifestyles extremely well through a wide range of activities. They meet children's individual needs exceptionally well and children are emotionally secure.

Staff make close observations of children's achievements and use the information well to plan for their next stages of development. Children make good progress. Parents are well informed and involved in their children's learning.

For example, staff share children's achievements daily and regularly inform parents of early years updates. It is not yet outstanding because: The managers and staff have not established fully effective ways to track different groups of children, to identify any gaps in their learning and help them make even better progress. Sometimes, staff do not use questioning as skilfully as possible, to extend conversations with children and increase opportunities to support their learning.
