Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • The provider, manager and staff have made vast improvements since the last inspection. They are reflective practitioners who strive for excellence. Children and parents are given a voice and their opinions are valued. Older children make decisions through a children’s committee. Parents appreciate the opportunity to be part of the parents’ development group. • The provider is very supportive of her staff. She encourages and supports them to continually build on their knowledge, skills and practice. As a result, she knows that she has a highly skilled workforce who ensure excellent outcomes for children. • Behaviour is exemplary. Children learn to be tolerant of others and to respect that others may have different opinions and ideas to their own. They learn to share, take turns and be kind to their friends. Staff act as positive role models and provide gentle reminders for children to use good manners at all times. • Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities are extremely well supported. Staff work closely with outside agencies and other professionals to ensure that children get the very best support. Staff are mindful of any additional medical conditions children may have and, where outside intervention is not readily available, implement activities to help children to overcome these. • Parents are fully involved in the nursery. Staff share a wealth of information with them about their child’s achievements. Parents are offered training, such as first aid, and take part in activities such as craft mornings and nursery rhyme challenges. They comment that staff ’always have time for parents and children’. • Children are supported very well when they move on to school. Teachers from the local schools visit to observe children in a familiar environment and to share assessments and any pertinent information. Staff read children books about starting school. They talk to children about how they feel and tell them that it is alright to be a little worried but they will make lots of new friends.
