Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers and leaders empower their whole staff team to adopt a very focused vision, ’to provide lots of tender loving care to children in a home-from-home environment’. This helps to ensure children are happy and settled with staff who truly care. Excellent tracking from accurate assessments is used well to swiftly identify what children need to learn next. Overall, staff use this information to plan meaningful activities that are centred around children’s next steps and interests. This contributes towards the sustained good progress that children make. Staff work together exceptionally well. Their strongly promoted teamwork ethos is filtered through their good teaching and contributes towards children working together with others to achieve a common goal. Staff’s calm and sensitive natures promote a friendly philosophy across the nursery, helping children to adopt a positive attitude towards others. They strongly endorse that kindness, love, care and laughter are the recipe for forming long-lasting friendships. Children are highly valued. They have many opportunities to share their experiences, cultures and beliefs from home with their peers. This contributes towards them gaining a good understanding of people and communities beyond their own. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasions, some activities and experiences are not carefully organised or fully resourced in order to help children make the best possible progress. Current routines do not involve parents in their children’s learning as much as possible.
