Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Effective partnerships with parents ensure that children’s needs are met and their learning is well supported. The management team has a clear vision of how to drive improvement to better meet the needs of children. Self-evaluation is very effective and includes the views of staff, parents and children. Teaching is good across the staff team. Staff readily join in with children’s play and skilfully enhance and extend children’s learning accordingly. Consequently, children make good progress. Children form trusting bonds with attentive staff, who offer them plenty of praise and encouragement. This helps to promote children’s emotional well-being. It is not yet outstanding because: Although the nursery has a good range of resources, these are not always accessible for the children to enable them to make choices, especially in the art and craft and imaginative play areas. Children are not given enough opportunities to write for different purposes, both indoors and outdoors. On occasions, children’s engagement in the activities is interrupted because of daily routines, such as nappy changing and toileting.
