Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Managers use self-evaluation effectively to identify and make improvements to the nursery. They gather feedback from parents and older children. Recent changes have improved experiences for children to develop their imagination and to investigate and explore in soil. Staff help children to develop their knowledge and understanding of how to care for animals. For example, they take children to feed the nursery chickens, pig and sheep. Children show strong emotional attachments to staff. They are keen to engage in the good range of resources and activities when they arrive and enjoy playing alongside them. Staff observe children as they play and transfer this onto their assessment records showing children’s abilities. This helps them to identify and plan for children’s next steps in learning, helping them to make good progress. Children are supported well by staff when they move from room to room in the nursery. Staff take them for visits and children join together for mealtimes. This helps children to be familiar with the environment and staff. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff are not provided with enough support through professional development to help extend their teaching practice to a higher level. Staff do not involve parents enough in further supporting their child’s learning at home. Staff do not share information about children’s learning and development with other early years settings they attend to support consistency of approach.
