Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has developed a focussed improvement plan to increase outcomes for children. She gathers feedback from staff at meetings and parents through questionnaires. This helps her to identify and make changes to the nursery. The manager implements measures that help to keep children safe and secure. Unauthorised people can not enter the building and measures are in place to ensure that they leave with a suitable adult. The quality of teaching is consistently good. Staff play alongside children and support their interests. They closely observe and monitor children’s progress, helping them to extend their learning and make good progress. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Parents say that staff keep them very well informed about their children’s learning and the progress they make. They say that the nursery is homely and that staff are passionate about their role in supporting children. Staff provide children with opportunities to develop their independence. For example, older children help to lay the table for mealtimes, cut up their fruit and serve themselves. Toddlers help to clean up spills and put tissues in the bin. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not always give children the encouragement and support they need to follow their own interests and learn as much as possible from the good activities they provide. Systems for analysing the progress made by different groups of children are still being developed.
