Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • Overall, staff's teaching is strong.

Some of the teaching is better than good, particularly in the pre-school room. The standard of care given to babies is exceptional and this helps them to thrive. • Staff form effective partnerships with parents.

Parents are very happy with the care provided by the nursery. They feel that they are well supported to continue their child's learning at home. • Children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are supported well.

Staff work closely with other professionals to ensure children's needs are met. • Children gain good communication and language skills. Children thoroughly enjoy dail...y activities focused on developing their knowledge of letters and sounds.

Baby room staff respond well to babies' babble and provide good narrative to their actions to support their developing skills. • Staff are excellent role models who lead by example. New children quickly learn about expected behaviour and are well mannered and polite.

It is not yet outstanding because: • At times, staff working with two-year-old children do not plan and manage the daily routines highly effectively to make the most of learning opportunities and play time. For example, tidying and nappy changing routines sometimes delay or interrupt activities. • Although continued professional development opportunities are provided for all staff, these are not always sharply focused on raising the quality of teaching to the highest level consistently across the nursery.
