Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff use their skills and training well and plan challenging activities based on children’s individual interests. Children are motivated, confident learners. The key-person system is well established and effective. Babies and children develop close relationships with the sensitive, caring and attentive staff. Care practices are extremely successful in helping to promote children’s good health and well-being. Staff develop close links with other early years providers and external professionals. This helps to ensure that children receive additional support if needed. Children are well supported as they transfer to other settings, including school. Staff help children to develop a good understanding of behavioural expectations. Partnerships with parents are very good. Staff work closely with parents and effective systems are in place to share information about children’s care and learning. This helps to strengthen links between the nursery and home and promotes consistency and continuity for all children. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff effectively monitor individual children’s progress but do not use this information well to monitor different groups of children to identify and close any gaps in achievement. The manager does not use highly effective systems to regularly monitor teaching and learning, to help ensure they are consistently improving to the highest standard.
