Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are happy and settled at the nursery. Staff know the children well and plan purposefully for them by offering a variety of activities to help support their ongoing learning. All children make good progress in their learning and development. Staff observe and track children’s development well to build on what children know and can do. Staff support children’s self-esteem and behaviour well. For example, they encourage children to share and take turns well and offer consistent praise in all achievements. Communication with parents is good. For example, parents receive regular verbal feedback from staff about how their children are progressing, and are offered their children’s learning records to add in their observations from home. Strong recruitment, induction and ongoing appraisal programmes are in place to ensure all staff working with children are suitable and capable within their roles. Self-evaluation methods are strong in allowing the management team to identify and advance areas for development to provide consistently good-quality care for children. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff do not consistently extend children’s learning about the world. For example, where the food they are eating comes from and how healthy eating affects our bodies. Occasionally, staff miss opportunities to encourage less confident children to join in during large-group activities to help them take a more active role.
