Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers have improved practice in the nursery since the last inspection. They are committed to providing high-quality care and learning experiences for children. They consult with staff, parents and children to devise ways to further improve the provision, such as redeveloping the outdoor area. Children behave well and are confident and happy in their play. They learn to share, take turns and enjoy their activities. They form good relationships with staff and other children and willingly participate in group activities. Staff carefully observe children and plan for the next steps in their learning. They place a strong emphasis on promoting children’s communication skills and plan challenging activities to help children develop and make good progress. Partnerships with parents are effective. Staff encourage the two-way exchanging of information about children’s care, development and progress. This shared approach helps to promote consistency in children’s experiences. It is not yet outstanding because: Arrangements for ongoing professional development for staff are not focused precisely enough on raising the quality of teaching to an outstanding level. Managers and staff do not have strong enough partnerships with outside agencies to ensure there is a fully collaborative approach to supporting the learning of children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities.
