What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision requires improvement Managers have worked positively with the local authority early years advisers since the last inspection.

Due focus on staff training and professional development has ensured that all staff are clear of their safeguarding roles and responsibilities. Staff create an accessible and safe learning environment that supports children's independence. However, children and staff do not have consistent warm running water.

This does not ensure the constant safe preparation of food or support staff and children to manage their personal hygiene effectively.Children are supported to develop many valuable skills. Planning gives focus to... all areas of learning so that children mostly experience a broad curriculum.

Most staff are clear of their roles in supporting children's care and learning needs. Children who have been identified with special educational needs and/or disabilities receive the support they need. This is because staff liaise with parents and outside professionals to help children receive the interventions needed to assist their progress.

However, the monitoring for all children's development is not consistently accurate. This means that some children do not receive the support they need to assure their progress.Staff provide a warm welcome to children in the morning.

This supports most children to enter nursery happy and confident to say goodbye to their parents. Children demonstrate positive attitudes towards their learning. They enthusiastically engage in adult-led learning experiences.

For example, they enjoy mathematical challenges as they count objects and find the corresponding number card. Their self-esteem is boosted as staff praise their efforts.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Managers are confident to talk about their curriculum priorities.

They understand the importance of focusing on the prime areas of learning for the youngest children. Managers and staff have welcomed support provided by their advisers. Staff are much more focused on positive interactions with children.

Staff say they feel well supported by managers and value the improvements implemented since the last inspection. Nevertheless, planning systems and communication with other professionals when guidance for individual children is needed are yet to be fully embedded, so that all children are supported to make good progress across all areas of learning.Staff prioritise the development of children's communication skills.

They read to children and teach them how to handle books with care. Staff engage positively with younger children as they support them to explore lift-the-flap books. Children's individual next steps in their learning are considered in the choice of books.

For example, books are used well to help younger children progress from nappies to using a potty. They are confident to express the words they need to help them with this transition, for example using words such as 'potty' and 'toilet'.Staff understand the importance of planning physical challenges to support children's development.

The impact is that children are developing confidence in using climbing equipment. Staff encourage children's mark making, both outside in the garden and inside. Children enjoy drawing pictures of their family as staff facilitate discussions.

Older children are learning to recognise letters in their name, with some confident to write their names.Staff have developed positive relationships with children. They provide them with warm interactions that support children to feel safe and secure.

For example, children run to embrace their key person when they arrive to nursery. Staff teach children the importance of working together. Older children demonstrate they understand the rules of sharing and taking turns.

Staff listen to children and value what they have to say. For example, when children express they would rather build with construction than engage in an adult-led learning experience, staff respond positively to their wishes and reassure them that they can always join later. This supports children to develop confidence and self-motivation.

Managers and staff express that they value partnerships with parents. They demonstrate an understanding of the importance of working together. However, discussions with parents demonstrate inconsistencies in the level of communications they receive.

Some parents express their children are always happy to attend nursery and are making good progress, while others report they do not know how their children are progressing. They express they have not received information about their children's next steps or how they can support their learning at home.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

There is an open and positive culture around safeguarding that puts children's interests first.
