Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding The manager develops highly effective partnerships and communication with an extensive network of other professionals. This has a very positive impact on supporting parents and on the safeguarding, welfare and development of their children.

The deputy manager has established exemplary ways of monitoring children's progress. She and the nursery's special educational needs coordinator work very closely with all staff to quickly identify and target each child's next steps in learning precisely. Children make rapid progress in their learning and development.

Managers keep their dedicated staff focused on constantly raising the level of their tea...ching to improve outcomes for children. Their success is clearly documented as high numbers of children starting with limited skills in different areas catch up with other children in their age group before they go to school. Staff plan highly engaging and exciting activities and use them to help children learn to be safe.

For example, all children learn the importance of wearing safety protection clothing. Older children discuss and agree safety rules. They learn to use real tools, such as hammers, screwdrivers, nails and screws, safely.

Children develop a strong sense of their uniqueness and their place in the group. For example, children vote for their favourite storybook and know they may not always get what they want. They also know that their views are important, respected and valued.
