Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The manager has a clear vision of how to improve children’s outcomes. She continually sets challenging targets to improve all areas of the nursery, helping it to go from strength-to-strength. Parents rate the nursery highly. Incisive evaluation, using parent views, is having a very positive impact on children’s daily experiences. The management team has very high expectations of staff. Any weaknesses in practice are tackled appropriately and swiftly, helping to continually improve the quality of teaching. The quality of staff interactions with children is superb. Staff communicate with children at their level, encouraging them to have a go when they are reluctant and to think about ways to overcome challenges. This sustains their learning, helping them to achieve more. Staff carefully consider the emotional needs of children. This helps children form very strong bonds with staff. The care children receive is outstanding. All children feel very safe and secure. Babies explore with confidence, toddlers are very happy to play independently and pre-school children believe highly in their own abilities. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not give parents the information they need, about what children need to learn next, to help them guide their children’s learning as successfully as possible at home. Staff do not always plan as effectively as possible, in order to ensure babies and toddlers are consistently challenged to make as much progress as possible in their learning.
