Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The nursery is led and managed by a skilled and knowledgeable management team.

The nursery manager is passionate and committed. There is a strong focus on the continued improvement of the nursery and raising outcomes for children. Reflective practice is well-embedded within the staff team who, along with the views of parents, children and other professionals, contribute to improvement plans.

• Partnership working at this nursery is exemplary. The manager and staff work tirelessly to understand and meet the needs of the children and their families. They provide excellent support and effectively build and maintain very close working relationships.<>
Parents are heavily involved in their children's learning. They are highly valued as their children's first educator and widely encouraged to contribute to their learning within nursery and at home. • Support for children who speak English as an additional language is excellent.

Children benefit from the multi-lingual staff team who provide a wealth of opportunity for children to play and learn in their home language. Displays around the nursery accommodate the various languages spoken by the children and families, with translated labels and documents to ensure an inclusive environment. • Staff manage children's behaviour very well.

They are calm and positive in their approach and help children to understand the expectations of their behaviour. Children are caring and reassuring towards those who are unsettled, showing wonderful empathy for their peers. • Diversity is seamlessly embedded into everyday play.

Staff create a learning environment that mirrors the broad diversity of the children attending, fostering feelings of self-worth and an understanding and respect of others. • There is scope to enhance the monitoring of practice to provide even more rigorous evaluations of staff teaching. • Occasionally, group activities lack purpose, meaning that some children are not fully engaged in their learning.
