Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children are happy and well settled. Staff are friendly and welcoming, and they know the children well. Children build strong attachments with all of the staff in the setting. Partnerships with parents are strong. Parents are very involved in the running of the nursery and often take part in activities and celebrations. For example, parents visit the nursery and carry out activities with the children on a regular basis. The setting is well organised and stimulating. Children are encouraged to make their own choices and decisions about with what they would like to play. Children become independent. Children are sociable and enjoy spending time playing with their peers. Staff provide children with time to play with the other age groups in the setting. They show excitement when they meet their siblings in the outdoor area. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff sometimes do not extend children’s learning during planned activities, when they focus on what is planned and miss opportunities for spontaneous learning. The leaders and staff do not yet monitor the progress of the groups of children in the setting to identify and close gaps that may emerge in their development.
