Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers and staff give high priority to safeguarding children. They have a good knowledge of the signs of abuse and know how to report any concerns about a child in their care to the appropriate agencies. Staff provide a safe environment and they supervise children well.

The quality of teaching is good. The well-qualified staff know how children learn and provide challenging and exciting activities, which engage and motivate children. This has a positive impact on children's learning opportunities.

All children make good progress in their learning and development. Managers support staff to attend a variety of training courses. Staff use the skills... gained to enhance children's enjoyment in the nursery and improve their learning outcomes.

Support for disabled children and those who have special educational needs is a strength of the nursery. It is not yet outstanding because: Children are not always given enough time to develop their own ideas as, occasionally, staff over-direct activities. Opportunities to further develop children's understanding and appreciation of other traditions and cultural similarities and differences in the wider community are not fully promoted.
