Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The managers and staff are passionate, caring and attentive.

They create a positive environment where children feel happy, valued and secure. • The managers and staff have a good vision of how they want the nursery to develop. They have a commitment to enhance the already good quality of care and learning and do so through effective action plans.

• Managers seek opportunities to support staff's professional development, facilitating a range of rich training opportunities. However, this does not always impact on all members of staff's teaching practice. Consequently, some teaching is richer than others.

For example, training techniques to... develop effective communication and language are not consistently demonstrated when staff play alongside the children. • The staff know the children in their care well. They make accurate assessments of children's achievements and use the information well to enable staff to plan for future learning.

• Good relationships between the staff and parents enable them to share a wide range of information, helping them to provide a consistent approach to supporting children's learning. • Overall quality of teaching is strong. Staff use good interactions to support learning.

However, not all staff consistently use questioning effectively to fully support children to think imaginatively and to develop their own ideas. • Staff successfully promote positive behaviour. They give children lots of praise for their achievements, helping to raise their self-esteem.

• Staff provide good opportunities for children to develop their mathematical skills. For instance, they count coloured animals into pots, helping them to develop their understanding of number. Older children enjoy identifying the largest and smallest animal from a set.

• Children have daily opportunities to enjoy the outside area to develop good physical skills. They care for the plants that they have grown and safely explore ways of moving across climbing equipment. This helps children to self-evaluate how to play safely.
