Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Leaders have a clear plan and ambitious vision for the nursery. Self-evaluation is effective in continually identifying and addressing areas for improvement. Staff benefit from regular supervision and support from the manager. They have regular opportunities to enhance their professional development. This helps to maintain good outcomes for children. Children’s behaviour is good. Staff give clear explanations and remind children of the boundaries and this helps children to understand why rules are in place. Planning is effective. Staff use children’s individual interests to plan activities. They assess what children need to learn next and use this information to help children to make good progress from their starting points. Staff extend children’s language skills well. Babies’ and young children’s vocabulary is developing quickly and older children are confident communicators who express their ideas and thoughts effectively. It is not yet outstanding because: Although staff have good relationships with parents, they do not consistently exchange enough information to help parents fully understand the learning taking place. Occasionally, discussions among staff interrupt good-quality interactions with children. At these times, staff do not make the best use of opportunities to fully extend children’s learning and some children lose focus.
