Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Children behave well. Staff teach the children the importance of sharing and turn taking. They are consistent in their approach to behaviour management. Staff provide good-quality teaching, helping children to make good progress with their learning and development. Leadership and management of the nursery are strong. The manager works together with staff to set targets for children to work towards. They also gather the views of the parents effectively and use these well to help make improvements to the practice in the setting. For example, they changed the food at some meal times as requested by the parents. Staff deployment meets the required legal ratios and helps to keep children safe. Children have a good bond with staff, which helps them to feel secure and become confident learners. Children settle in quickly and are ready to start learning straight away. It is not yet outstanding because: At times, staff miss opportunities to engage quieter children in activities to encourage them to share their views and thoughts. Routines at the end of meal times are at times disorganised. For example, as staff concentrate on washing some children’s hands and faces, other children become bored and restless.
