Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff understand how to support children in their development. A stimulating environment, both indoors and outside, engages children in their chosen play. Children are happy, confident and settled at the nursery. Children build good bonds with staff who are kind, caring and respond well to their individual needs. This helps to promote children’s emotional well-being. Partnerships with parents, local early years settings and other professionals are strong. Good communication and information sharing help to support all children, including children who have special educational needs or disability and those who speak English as an additional language. The staff and managers are passionate about providing good quality care and learning experiences. They have worked hard to meet the actions and recommendations raised at the previous inspection. They work closely with other professionals to help them to identify areas that can be further enhanced. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff regularly assess the progress of individual children. However, leaders and managers have not yet implemented a highly effective system to monitor and review the progress of different groups. The current arrangement for staff’s professional development is not sufficiently focused on raising the quality of teaching to the highest level.
