Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The well-qualified staff create a highly inclusive environment for children.

Children are very happy, confident and secure. They form close bonds with staff, who are caring and attentive to their individual needs. Staff's nurturing approach helps promote children's well-being.

• The manager and staff work extremely well together. Ongoing self-evaluation helps to identify areas for development. There is a clear vision for the nursery, and the manager and staff share high aspirations for children's learning and development.

• Staff manage children's behaviour well. They put in place strategies to help children develop their social and emot...ional skills. For instance, they make effective use of sand timers to help enable children to learn how to share and take turns with the resources.

• Partnerships with parents are good. Parents feel fully involved in their children's learning and regularly receive updates about their children's progress. They are provided with ideas for activities that support continued learning at home.

• Children make good progress and develop the necessary skills for their next steps in learning and for their move to school. They develop particularly good early literacy skills. For instance, children enjoy exploring a range of different tools to make marks, including paint, chalks and crayons, and learn to give meaning to the marks they make.

• The manager has recently introduced changes to the tracking which make it clearer to see the progress children are making. The manager analyses the information from tracking and identifies emerging gaps in learning and development at the earliest opportunity. • Although staff teach children about good hygiene procedures, such as hand washing, this is not always consistent.
