Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff fully understand the care needs of all children. They are very calm and create a warm and nurturing environment for young children. Children and babies are happy, secure and confidently explore the stimulating nursery environment. They form strong, trusting bonds with staff and go to them for comfort, reassurance and encouragement. Staff assess children’s development closely and plan effectively for their next steps in learning. Managers monitor the progress that all children make, including funded children, and address any gaps in learning quickly. Staff successfully share expertise with other professionals working with children. All children make good progress from their starting points, regardless of their situation. The enthusiastic managers reflect carefully on the effectiveness of the nursery. They work well with staff, parents and children to help identify strengths and areas for further improvement. They make positive changes to help meet the needs of all children and maintain their good learning and development outcomes. Parent partnerships are strong. The managers and staff keep parents fully up to date with their children’s development. They regularly share records of what children are learning and ideas for how parents can further support this at home. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently have the highest expectations for what children can achieve during activities and their play, to fully extend their learning. At times, staff do not fully support children’s understanding of how their behaviour can have an impact on others.
