Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • Leaders have high expectations of children and are ambitious for what they can achieve.

For example, the manager is able to express her clear and unwavering focus on 'the children's experience above process'. The manager carefully considers the development of the environment to ensure that it offers children strong opportunities to play and learn. • Staff act as good role models for children.

They show care and compassion towards each other, which the children clearly understand and mirror. • Staff provide a calm and supportive environment in which children settle quickly and excitedly engage. This allows children to develop their self-confidence... and helps them to understand how to be a successful learner.

• Staff know the children well and identify next steps accurately. Parents are encouraged to build on the next steps to support learning and development at home. • Children have access to a good range of resources from which they are able to freely choose across the nursery.

Staff follow children's interests closely and support the choices they make. For example, in the baby room, some children expressed a preference not to move to a water activity and were able to continue with their chosen play. • Older children are well prepared for school.

They develop good language skills and speak confidently with adults and each other during their play. • Arrangements to monitor the quality of teaching and evaluate practice could focus more sharply on raising the quality of teaching to the highest standards. • Staff do not always provide children with extended opportunities to see and explore written words to help further develop their interest in literacy.
