Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is outstanding • Leaders make accurate evaluations of the nursery's areas of strength.

They correctly identify areas needing improvement, taking into account the views of staff and parents. They rigorously track assessment data, identify gaps in attainment and put effective measures in place to close them. • Leaders and staff are highly skilled and work well as a team.

They cohesively use their teaching knowledge exceptionally well to support children's learning and development. • Partnerships with parents are exceptionally strong. Leaders find innovative ways to engage parents in their child's learning at home.

For example, they use some of the a...dditional funding the nursery receives to purchase books and cameras for parents to use to support their child's learning at home. Parents say they are very happy with their children's progress and the staff are very approachable and caring towards all the children. • The nursery environment is extremely well organised.

Children demonstrate a well-embedded understanding of the routines. They confidently say what they are doing next and why. There is a consistent approach across the entire team of modelling positive interaction.

As a result, children show high levels of respect for each other and are extremely well behaved. • Staff make accurate assessments of children's starting points. They use this information, alongside children's interests, to plan highly stimulating activities that help children make speedy progress in their development.

• Staff have very strong, caring bonds with babies. As a result, babies quickly develop the confidence to curiously explore. Hygiene practice is exceptional.

Children routinely wash their hands before eating, after playing and after blowing their noses. • The children enjoy celebrating various festivals, for example Chinese New Year. They have high self-esteem and understand that other children have different family traditions to their own.
