Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Children settle quickly into the very welcoming and stimulating environment. The friendly staff team creates a relaxed atmosphere where every child is valued and supported effectively. • The quality of teaching is good. The learning environments are carefully organised and provide children with enjoyable learning experiences. Children make choices about their play and move around the nursery confidently. • Partnerships with parents are strong. Staff successfully engage parents in their children’s learning from the start. Ongoing sharing of information helps to support continuity in children’s care, learning and development. • A wide range of policies and procedures is implemented effectively and underpins the efficient running of the nursery. • Self-evaluation accurately identifies weaknesses in practice so that these can be addressed and drive continued improvement. It takes into account the views of staff, parents and children to help develop the practice effectively. It is not yet outstanding because: • Key persons do not always make sure that they keep other staff fully informed about all children’s next steps for learning. They do not always have the information they need to fully challenge children to the highest level. • Staff do not fully maximise opportunities for children to learn about people and communities beyond their own experiences.
