Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Managers lead a very highly motivated, dedicated staff team.

They all strive for excellence and actively seek ways to build upon the very high standards of practice. Children are highly independent and motivated. For example, they wipe their own noses, throw tissues away and wash their hands.

Babies squeeze toothpaste onto brushes and clean their own teeth. The well-qualified staff know the children extremely well. They plan challenging activities that superbly follow what children are interested in.

Children spend very long periods of time totally enthralled in play. Children of all ages are exceptionally well behaved. The atmosphere of the nursery is immensely calm and inviting.

Staff are extremely positive, attentive and responsive. This helps support children's emotional well-being. Very thorough processes are in place for assessing and monitoring the progress of all children.

Highly detailed plans of support are impeccably developed with staff, parents and external agencies. Children, including those who speak English as an additional language and who have special educational needs or disabilities, make exceptional progress. Children inspiringly learn about different cultures and religions on a regular basis.

For example, staff show children the differences between Chinese and English writing. They take children to visit cenotaphs after making poppies. Children are supported remarkably well when moving rooms or on to school.

Staff share a wealth of information about individual children's stages of development and assess their ability to manage change. For example, where children require additional support, key persons move from the baby unit to the main nursery. This helps provide exceptional consistency in care.
