Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children behave very well. Staff are consistent in their approach to managing children’s behaviour. They give them lots of praise and encouragement and encourage them to use good manners, particularly at snack times. Children help staff to grow vegetables in the garden. They find potatoes in the soil and use them in their play. Children learn about how things grow and decay over time. The manager regularly reviews practice and gathers information from parents and staff to help her to identify improvements. This has a positive impact on outcomes for children. Staff use their knowledge of how children learn to plan a range of activities that further enhances and promotes children’s learning experiences. Children enjoy regularly fresh air and exercise. They access the nursery garden as soon as they arrive and enjoy riding on bikes and catching bubbles as they float into the air. Staff ensure that children wear sun hats in hot weather to promote sun safety. It is not yet outstanding because: Although staff have good relationships with parents, they do not share ideas with them about how they can support their children’s learning at home. Staff do not involve all parents in identifying the starting points for children’s learning to help inform their initial assessments.
