Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Staff use good methods of teaching. They plan activities according to children's individual needs and interests. As a result, all children make good progress in their learning.

Children are extremely happy and settled. Staff are attentive to their needs and get to know them well. This helps to promote children's confidence and emotional well-being.

Children have plenty of opportunities to spend time outdoors. They readily help to take care of the plants and flowers growing and enjoy exploring and hunting for bugs. Children's communication and language skills are promoted particularly well.

Younger children's attempts at pronouncing new wor...ds are supported by staff through repetition and praise. Staff routinely introduce new words to older children during play to help extend their vocabulary. Staff are passionate about the service they provide.

They reflect well on all aspects of the provision, leading to good and consistent practice throughout the nursery. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff are not always successful at making sure that all parents are able to share information about their children's learning at home, in order to fully support their future learning. Staff's professional development is not yet focused on raising the quality of teaching to the highest level.

Managers and staff understand their responsibilities for protecting children. Regular child protection training is accessed and staff are aware of the potential signs and symptoms of abuse and neglect. Staff maintain a safe environment and supervise children well.

Children develop good imagination skills. They pretend to make food and drinks for their friends and staff, and use the toy ironing board to pretend to iron the dolls' clothes in the home corner. Children's mathematical knowledge is developing well.

Staff use appropriate opportunities to encourage them to count, compare and estimate, such as when building models and towers using bricks. Personal development, behaviour and welfare are good The key-person system is effective. This helps to build good relationships between staff, children and families and promotes children's all-round emotional development.
