Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The management team reflects critically on practice and accurately identifies areas to improve. The team has a keen drive to push improvements forward, and places children at the heart of everything it does. Staff use their observations of children’s play well to plan activities that focus on their individual next steps in their learning and development. Children receive effective support and enjoy the range of challenging activities. Children are happy, settled and quickly engage in their chosen activities. They make independent choices in their play. Children seek out their friends and staff to join in their play. The very good and secure key-person system helps to ensure all children are emotionally well prepared to learn. In particular, those children who are preparing for their move on to school. It is not yet outstanding because: The manager and staff do not use their accurate assessments to help them fully evaluate how well different groups of children learn, to precisely target any potential gaps or patterns in learning. Although staff share detailed information with parents about what their children learn and can do at the nursery, they do not consistently engage all parents successfully to share what their children achieve at home.
