Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Partnerships with parents are a particular strength of the nursery. The management team and staff work extremely well to keep parents informed about their children’s learning and development. They provide plenty of opportunities for parents to continue to support their child’s good progress at home. Staff provide a warm and welcoming environment for children. Key-persons support children well when they move rooms in the nursery, promoting their emotional well-being. Staff gather information about children’s medical and dietary requirements from parents. All staff are aware of children’s individual needs and promote their good health. Staff risk assess the environment indoors and outdoors, and remove any identified hazards. They store cleaning materials out of reach of children and maintain a clean environment. Children arrive happy and are keen to join staff at the good range of activities provided. They settle well and are confident in their interactions with staff. Children make good progress in their learning and development. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasions, three-year-old children do not have enough opportunities to explore their surroundings and their self-chosen play. Staff’s professional development is not sharply focused on raising the quality of teaching to a higher level.
