Staff know individual children’s needs and interests and plan activities to promote children’s development in all areas. They interact skilfully with children to help build on what the children already know and can do. Children make good progress in their learning. Staff know children well and develop close, nurturing relationships with them. Children who are new to the setting are well supported as they bond with their key person. Interactions between staff and babies are sensitive, warm and affectionate. Children feel safe and secure at the nursery. There is a well established and effective working partnership with parents. Staff regularly consult with parents and gather information about what children have achieved or engaged in at home. They make good use of this information to support children’s ongoing progress and development. It is not yet outstanding because: Procedures to observe, develop and enhance the quality and impact of staff practice are not focused sharply enough on improving the overall quality of teaching. Sometimes, children’s engagement and concentration is not fostered effectively during routines and group activities.
