Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good • The management team has implemented a lot of valuable changes that have a positive impact on children's health, safety and well-being. Staff complete regular risk assessments to ensure that the environment, resources and equipment are safe and suitable for children to use.

• Staff promote children's curiosity and creative interests. For example, young babies enjoy a stimulating 'beach' area. They are motivated by staff and eager to join in as they explore the texture of the sand and have fun splashing in the paddling pool.

• Children benefit from good opportunities to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle and they eat a balanced range of healt...hy food. Staff follow clear procedures, which ensure that all children, including those with specific dietary and medical needs, are protected. This promotes children's health and safety.

• Staff provide good opportunities for children to develop their interest in books and stories. They model language effectively and encourage children to join in and fill in the missing words during a story. This is one teaching method that encourages children's emerging vocabulary.

• Partnerships with parents are good. Parents speak warmly of the staff team and are happy with the care and education their children receive. • Children's physical development is promoted well.

Staff thoughtfully plan for children's interests both indoors and outdoors. Children enjoy climbing and exploring different textures. They use their imaginations well as they work together to create their own games, with small-world play.

• The newly implemented system for supervision meetings to monitor staff's teaching and professional development is not fully developed. • Staff do not consistently promote effective strategies to identify what children are doing at home to enhance children's engagement at nursery. • On occasions, staff do not recognise when to adjust their teaching to present further challenge for the older or most-able children and babies.
