The provision is outstanding

The nursery is a joyous place. Children become immersed in their activities on arrival at the nursery.

They find the variety of things to do exciting. Children enjoy playing together in the outdoor space, as they develop their physical skills. Children engage in many different activities that develop the skills needed for writing.

Name tags are ready for children to self-register as they arrive. Children use these name tags to help them as they write their names on their work. They express wonder and delight in the natural world around them.

Children enjoy working with real fruit and vegetables in their... home corners. They comment on the smell of the herbs they use to make play dough. Children share the excitement and anticipation of fast paced and interesting group times.

Children see numbers around them, count objects and count on their fingers as they sing. Children make great use of quiet, cosy areas to explore books. They are keen to share favourite books with adults.

What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Staff are exceptionally skilled at developing children's communication and language. They modify their use of language for each individual child. Children learn new words as they process what they hear.

They have time to think about new vocabulary. Staff talk about what the children are doing as they play. This helps children to develop their vocabulary.

Staff ensure that children are immersed in opportunities to extend their communication and language skills throughout the day. Books are readily available and children share their favourite books with adults. They sing rhymes to each other and join in familiar stories.

Staff guide children's behaviour. They give children clear instructions about what they expect them to do. As a result, children behave well.

Children's communication with adults and each other is respectful and effective. Children listen, enthralled, to a familiar story. They discuss a book character's emotions together.

For example, children fetch their own name tags to help them label their work.Two highly skilled managers work alongside each other. They give staff immediate feedback.

Managers spend time modelling outstanding practice with the children. All members of staff repeat this excellent practice throughout the setting. This means that children make rapid progress due to effective teaching.

Staff carry out meticulous assessments when children join the nursery. These identify any early concerns about a child's development. The nursery leaders work closely with other professionals to address these.

Early interventions are swiftly organised to help children catch up. The leadership team organises training designed to help individual children within the setting. This results in children quickly catching up with their peers.

Parents report that the nursery staff offer outstanding support and advice to families. They talk about how attending the nursery has helped their children. They say that it has resulted in obvious and rapid progress in their children's social and thinking skills.
