What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children thrive at this highly inclusive and well-run nursery.

They are happy and relaxed as they play in the pleasant ambience that staff create. Children are eager to start activities. They readily engage in meaningful play.

Staff have high expectations for every child. This includes children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), who receive excellent support. Across the nursery, staff expertly promote children's language and vocabulary.

The leader's curriculum is broad and well thought out. Staff plan a wealth of activities that link closely to children's interests, as well as bo...oks, important events and seasons. Children have excellent opportunities to revisit learning and embed their knowledge.

This helps them to achieve well. Children display high levels of independence and self-confidence. They independently dress themselves and attempt their fastenings.

Children handle cutlery competently and serve their own portions at mealtimes. Children display a keen enthusiasm for books and stories. They listen attentively as staff read to them.

Children confidently point to pictures and share their own ideas.Staff know each child's needs very well and provide a high level of care. Children form very secure attachments to their key persons.

They feel comfortable around them and seek them out for hugs and cuddles.

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

Staff are patient, pleasant and nurturing. They value children's different personalities.

Staff sensitively communicate consistent boundaries and high expectations for children's behaviour. Children learn to talk about and manage their feelings and emotions very well. They are well mannered and say 'please' and 'thank you' as they interact.

Children have interesting opportunities to learn about other communities. They enjoy tasting and eating healthy meals from a culturally diverse menu. Children dance and sing to their own rhythms as they play traditional drums.

Children enjoy dressing up in African and other multicultural attire. Leaders encourage children to be active and healthy. Children have opportunities to access swimming lessons through the linked 'Father's Project' initiative.

Children play harmoniously alongside each other. They are determined, happy and curious. Young children learn to be tolerant.

For example, they patiently wait their turn to 'zoom' their cars down the tracks. Children learn resilience. They persist at manipulating different construction resources to successfully build their creations.

Children develop impressive early number skills. Older children learn to recognise small quantities without counting, before adding them together. Younger children practise counting back as they sing counting rhymes.

Staff use their expertise to promote children's excellent communication skills. They initiate conversations by narrating children's actions. Children repeat newly introduced vocabulary.

For instance, they quickly learn to describe objects by their colour, size and texture.Children play energetically outdoors. They display remarkable agility as they briskly pedal trikes around obstacles.

They develop core strength from swinging and balancing on different equipment. Children learn to kick and control balls as they roll them down the grassy hill area.Parents feel that staff value their children as individuals.

They describe staff as being professional, friendly and caring people. Parent partnerships are very strong. Parents enter the nursery at collection times and are involved in their children's learning.

Leaders prioritise staff well-being. They provide support and guidance so that staff can manage their workloads well. Leaders have created a cohesive team, which is focused on providing the very best for children.

The manager has ensured that support for children with SEND is of a very high standard. Children's needs are carefully identified, taking account of advice from external agencies. Experienced staff provide children with highly effective interventions.

This includes 'bucket time', the use of transitional objects and brief interaction approaches. Children learn to follow the routines and understand sign language. Therefore, all children make the best progress possible.

Leaders are committed to making significant continuous improvements to the nursery. For example, the manager has firm plans in place to create a designated sensory soft-play space with some recently acquired resources. This will provide additional physical play opportunities for children.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.Leaders have comprehensive policies and effective procedures in place. Staff are trained to recognise the signs of abuse or if a child is at risk of harm.

Staff know how to report any concerns and who to report them to. Leaders keep records about any concerns. Staff embed children's good oral hygiene habits.

Children learn to thoroughly clean their teeth during daily toothbrushing times. Managers and staff work well with external agencies to support families that need help. Leaders have an informed understanding of safeguarding concerns in the local community.
