Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding Children arrive extremely happy and eager to share information and special items with staff, such as hats, clothes, plants and a feather. They quickly lead their parents to show them where they want to play and what they intend to do.

There have been enormous improvements under the new manager and committee combination. Together they provide extremely strong and inspirational leadership for the dedicated and experienced staff team. Staff are, without exception, consistently skilled at encouraging children to think, problem solve and achieve their goal.

For example, they help children decide what crockery they needed to eat their snack. The e...xceedingly rich outdoor learning environment greatly extends the range of skills children acquire and enhances how they learn. They learn how to move freely and be safe, how to grow food and flowers and how to give insects somewhere to live.

The manager has established excellent partnerships and multi-agency working that truly supports all children's care and learning needs. Her open door policy means other parents and professionals know they are welcome and they regularly come into the nursery to work with staff, children and parents. All children make exceptional progress from their individual starting points.
