Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The management team has worked effectively together to achieve good standards of care at the nursery.

The team has taken action to maintain ratio and qualification requirements in all rooms, to ensure children's needs are met. Arrangements for coaching and training have been improved to enable staff to interact with children more effectively to support their learning. • Children are settled and enjoy their time at this happy nursery.

Children throughout the nursery form close bonds with the adults who care for them. This supports their emotional well-being and helps them to develop good levels of self-confidence. • All children, including those w...ith additional needs and those who speak English as an additional language, make good progress from their starting points.

• Children behave well, overall. Staff provide them with good role models and consistently encourage them to say 'please' and 'thank you'. This helps children to learn good social skills.

• Although staff use good questioning to support children's learning overall, occasionally they overlook opportunities to extend children's thinking skills further. • Staff do not challenge children to do as much as possible for themselves, to encourage high levels of independence in their self-care. • Staff do not share enough information with all other settings that some children attend, to enable a fully shared approach to their learning and development.
