Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The nursery managers are keen and committed. They work very well together, drawing on their individual strengths to create a strong leadership team. They invest in and support the staff team through supervision and performance management. Staff place high value on establishing firm partnership with parents. Parents are widely informed about the early years curriculum and are provided with many opportunities to be involved in their children’s learning, in the nursery and at home. Children engage in exciting and novel activities that greatly support their awareness of healthy lifestyles. For example, they conduct experiments that test how far germs can spread when we sneeze, supporting a good understanding of the importance of hygiene practices. Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported very well through good partnership working with other professionals. Advice received is threaded effectively into planning and ensures children receive a consistent approach from all adults working with them. All children make good progress. It is not yet outstanding because: On occasion, staff do not carefully consider and plan effectively to ensure all children remain engaged during activities with mixed age groups. Managers do not always seek the most up-to-date information to inform even more precise monitoring of children’s progress and evaluations of teaching.
