Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The ambitious leaders and managers have high expectations for children. They work closely with staff to evaluate the effectiveness of the nursery and drive continuous improvement. • Children thoroughly enjoy their time at this welcoming and supportive nursery. Staff provide a wide range of activities and resources which stimulates and motivates children to learn. Children make good progress from their starting points. • Staff encourage positive relationships among the children. For example, they remind children to take turns during play and support young children to share their toys. Children behave very well. • Staff place a strong focus on promoting children’s communication and language development. This results in children developing good speaking skills. • Staff working with babies are highly skilled and show a genuine passion for their role. They provide a stimulating environment where babies confidently learn to explore and practise their developing skills. It is not yet outstanding because: • Staff working with toddlers do not always make the most of their interactions with children to fully extend their learning. • Leaders and managers do not monitor closely the progress that groups of children make in their learning to identify potential gaps and help raise children’s outcomes even further.
