This provision is outstanding Staff are well qualified and demonstrate an excellent understanding of how children learn and develop. They provide an abundance of exciting and challenging activities for children to enjoy. Children are exceptionally eager to learn and extremely focused on activities. The staff have built exceptional partnerships with parents. Parents are fully involved in their child’s learning and are well informed on ways to support their learning at home. The nursery works closely with other professionals to close gaps in children’s learning and provide any specialised individual support. The management team is inspirational. The manager and the staff team work extremely well together in their constant drive for improvement through self-reflection and evaluation. They continuously seek ways to improve children’s learning experiences. The nursery has an exceptionally strong focus on supporting children in gaining language and communication skills. Children are very eager to join in with a game where they choose a toy and describe the object, the colour and the sound it makes. Staff benefit from regular supervision and sharply focused targets. This promotes their professional development and targeted training, which builds on their already excellent practice. The management team is continuing to extend parents’ knowledge of how their children learn and develop through in-depth training sessions. Parents further their understanding of the different stages of learning and development and how to manage their children’s behaviour. Staff actively seek the views of parents and children and very effectively use these to sharply focus on priorities for improvement.
