Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children make good progress in their learning. Staff make accurate assessments of children’s development and know what children need to learn next. They regularly share information about children’s development with parents. Children are happy and confident at the nursery. They form secure relationships with staff and show that they are learning to understand the feelings of others. Children’s behaviour shows they feel safe and staff help them to understand risks during daily routines. Children have opportunities to lead their own play and are learning to manage their own needs independently. The manager evaluates the provision and identifies specific actions for improvement. Staff benefit from professional development that develops how they support children’s behaviour and early communication skills. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always use what they know about individual children to meticulously plan for their learning. Some activities are not used effectively to challenge children’s thinking and problem-solving skills. Methods to review children’s progress are not highly effective at identifying groups of children who would benefit from specific programmes of support.
