Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The quality of teaching is good. Staff have a secure knowledge of how young children learn. They plan interesting and exciting play experiences that children enjoy. This helps all children to make good progress in their development. Children are happy and settled in this welcoming environment. The kind and caring staff help children to form strong emotional attachments with them. Leaders and managers are passionate about providing good quality childcare. They reflect well on practice and consistently look for ways to enhance the provision to improve the experiences for children. Children behave very well. Staff set good examples for children and give gentle reminders about how to behave and to act respectfully towards each other. It is not yet outstanding because: Although settling-in arrangements for children when they move rooms within the nursery support their emotional needs, some staff do not always share information about children’s development in a timely way, so that the new key person can plan effectively from the very beginning. Staff do not always share enough information to ensure that all parents are fully informed about plans for their children’s next steps in learning.
