Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Children benefit from a caring and nurturing learning environment. They self-register when they arrive at the nursery, settle readily and make friends to play with. Staff offer children praise and reassurance as they learn new skills. This helps children to boost their confidence and self-esteem. Managers and staff know how children learn and develop through play. Children make good progress in relation to their individual starting points. They are well prepared for the next stages of their learning and development, including starting school. Children learn about their own identity and culture and those of others around them. For example, they take an active part in festivals and explore musical instruments from different countries. Staff keep parents well informed about their children’s progress and involve them in planning the next steps. Managers support staff well and consistently monitor and evaluate the quality of the provision to help ensure consistency in supporting children’s learning and development. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, staff do not provide enough opportunities to help children practise their early writing skills. Managers do not fully check the progress of the different groups of children to help identify less obvious gaps in their learning and use to tailor teaching if needed.
