Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are confident, happy and settled at the nursery. Young children are supported to develop special friendships. Leaders provide staff with good support to develop their professional skills. As a result, teaching is secure, and children make good or better progress. Progress is particularly strong in children’s communication and speaking skills. Staff work well with parents. Parents receive regular information about their child’s development. Staff work with parents to identify the next steps for their child. Children actively choose from a wide range of activities when they play. Staff plan the curriculum effectively. They use children’s current interests to provide activities to meet children’s developmental needs. It is not yet outstanding because: The progress check at age two does not clearly identify emerging concerns about a child’s development or the proposed next steps for their learning. Staff do not make full use of opportunities that arise in everyday play to teach mathematics. Staff do not give enough attention to the new words they might introduce to extend children’s vocabulary during planned, adult-led activities.
