Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • The highly experienced managers share an ambitious vision of what they want to achieve for children and families. Self-evaluation is rigorous. Managers have an accurate view of the nursery's strengths and act swiftly to address any areas that need developing.

• Children's behaviour is exemplary. Staff create a culture of mutual respect, kindness and tolerance throughout the nursery. Children learn to embrace individuality and celebrate each other's similarities and differences.

Staff provide children with an extensive range of opportunities to help them to develop an excellent understanding of people, families and communities beyond their ...own experiences. • Well-qualified staff use observation, planning and assessment with great precision. Observations are evaluated with rigour and next steps in children's learning are challenging and purposeful.

Planning is personalised to children's interests and provides them with excellent first-hand experiences. Assessment is used exceptionally well and any possible gaps in learning narrow at a rapid rate. • Children who speak English as an additional language and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) thrive in this fully inclusive environment.

Staff use their exceptional knowledge of individual children and work closely with other professionals to implement tailor-made strategies for each child and their family. • Staff have developed effective partnership working and good links with local primary schools. Children are introduced to school routines, for example having lunch in the school hall.

This ensures children are exceptionally well prepared for their eventual move to school. • Additional funding is used extremely well to equip the nursery with purposeful resources and experiences, enabling all children to make rapid progress in their learning. For example, children benefit from well-being workshops to support their physical and emotional development.
