Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Children are highly motivated by the outstanding activities and resources that are on offer. They make excellent progress in all areas of their learning and development relative to their starting points. Staff have a passion for learning and they role model learning for children very well indeed. As a result, children develop excellent problem-solving and creative-thinking skills. Children develop exceptional levels of self-esteem and resilience through activities that provide just the right level of challenge. Staff work very effectively in partnership with parents to ensure all children reach their full potential. Staff prepare children very well for transfers within the nursery and on to school. The managers are highly effective in driving improvement; they seek and listen to parents’ views, and work with local agencies to set a clear agenda for continual development. Staff are committed to achieving excellence and all demonstrate that children’s safety and well-being are at the heart of all they do. Very well qualified staff act as mentors for those with less experience. This has a very positive impact on staff practice and children’s care and learning. Staff use sharply focused assessments to identify gaps in children’s learning. Staff quickly address these to maximise children’s progress, and very effective relationships with outside agencies provide additional support where required. The leadership team demonstrates an exceptional commitment to development of staff that leads to inspirational provision for the children.
