Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good The manager has effective systems in place to evaluate the overall quality of the nursery. She works with staff and parents to identify future improvements and to develop action plans. All actions from the previous inspection have been addressed. Staff provide a calm and welcoming environment where children feel safe and valued. They act as positive role models and encourage children to treat each other with respect. Children behave well and show a good ability to play cooperatively. Children have plenty of opportunities to develop their understanding of the world, nature and living things. Staff plan a wide range of activities that supports children’s understanding of growth, change and healthy lifestyles. Children’s early language and communication skills are promoted effectively. Staff use a range of different strategies to support children’s language and extend their vocabulary. Children with English as an additional language make good progress. Partnerships with parents are good. Staff regularly share learning records with parents and discuss strategies to help promote learning at home. Parents are valued and included in discussions about improvements to the nursery. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not make the most of opportunities to extend and challenge children’s involvement in activities. New systems to monitor staff practice and assess the effectiveness of training are not yet fully embedded into practice.
