Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Since the last inspection the provider has made significant improvements. There are now effective systems for recording and monitoring accidents and to inform parents about children’s injuries and any treatment given. All areas of the nursery are kept clean, tidy and inviting. The staff now confidently and accurately follow up children’s learning needs in their planning and teaching. There are positive relationships with parents, who are delighted with the quality of care and their children’s progress. They comment on how well staff know, and take account of, their child’s personality, interests and abilities. Staff and parents often discuss children’s care and development. Parents welcome recent initiatives to further involve them in their children’s learning. The provider and manager have strengthened monitoring and evaluation of staff’s teaching. Staff have improved their interactions and use of resources as a result of observing each other and visiting an outstanding nursery. They confidently plan for children’s individual learning needs and successfully help them to make good progress. Babies and children are happy, settled and confident. They eagerly join in activities organised in welcoming, child-friendly surroundings. Babies and children are purposeful, remain interested and have fun, responding to the manager’s and staff’s attentive support and encouragement. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff foster children’s choices and ideas for play. However, they do not always encourage children to discuss and review their work, abilities and achievements, to extend their involvement in planning for their future learning. There is scope for staff to further extend the range of resources and experiences, to enable children of all ages to engage in varied, stimulating and imaginative role play.
