Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Children are extremely engaged, stimulated, excited and highly motivated to play, explore and learn. They make connections between different parts of their life experiences and use their excellent communication and imaginative skills in their play. • Children enjoy an extremely wide range of opportunities to learn and make impressive progress from their individual starting points. Staff make excellent use of children’s interests to extend their learning. For example, when children show an interest in birthday cakes during a play dough activity, staff support them to make cakes later in the day. Babies develop their imaginations as they wheel toy trains around a track. • Children are provided with an excellent range of healthy, well-balanced meals every day. Staff encourage parents to be involved in menu planning and have personalised the menu to reflect children’s individual preferences. Children have great fun as they take manageable risks in their play under close supervision. Children develop an excellent awareness about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. For example, they comment about teeth brushing when using sugar during the cooking activity. • Management meticulously monitors the educational programme to ensure children make progress in all areas of their learning. Management includes the staff, parents and their children in the self-evaluation processes. As part of this process, management has identified that there is the potential to promote the quality of teaching in the outdoor area to an even higher level. • Extensive links with external specialists provides expert advice which is scrupulously followed in nursery to ensure continuity for children. The use of additional funding is carefully considered to ensure that it benefits the children for whom it was intended.
