Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Good teaching and personalised learning experiences help all children to make good progress. Staff make detailed observations, accurately assess and regularly plan to meet children’s needs, taking account of their interests. • Transitions from home to the nursery are managed well. Settling-in procedures are tailored to the individual needs of each child and their family. Staff find out about children’s established routines and follow these, promoting continuity of care. • Children have daily opportunities to learn about leading healthy lifestyles. For example, they spend time outdoors in the fresh air, and grow fresh vegetables and fruit, such as potatoes, carrots and strawberries. • Staff prepare children well for their eventual move on to school. For example, children gain good independence, such as finding their name card to register their attendance, managing their lunchbox and putting their coats on for outdoor play. It is not yet outstanding because: • At times, the enthusiastic staff team do not give children the time to have a go at working out problems by themselves. • Staff do not work as successfully as possible with other settings that children currently attend, to increase the support more for children’s learning.
