Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff know the children very well and highly value their individual differences. They are friendly and enthusiastic and children form close bonds with them. Children thoroughly enjoy their time at nursery and engage well in a wide range of exciting activities. The manager and staff work well with parents to help successfully engage them in their children’s learning. They continually update parents with their children’s achievements and give plenty of helpful ideas to support further learning at home. Staff regularly observe children and assess their individual development closely. They use their good knowledge of children’s interests to help motivate them in their learning. All children make good progress from their developmental starting points. The nursery garden is particularly stimulating and children of all ages enjoy outdoor play very much. Babies show curiosity as they drop toys into a water tray, and older children carefully investigate textures as they explore sand, straw and flour. Staff use songs effectively to help children understand and follow the routines of the day. For example, children happily join in with special songs when it is time to drink water, tidy the toys or sit for group time. It is not yet outstanding because: The support for less experienced staff is not fully embedded to help raise the quality of their practice to an outstanding level. The manager does not monitor and check the progress that different groups of children make extensively enough to ensure each group always receives outstanding levels of support for their learning.
