Summary of key findings for parents
This provision is good Staff are well qualified. They consistently support all children’s language skills very well. For example, staff use skilful teaching methods to encourage children to express what they are thinking and to share their thoughts and ideas with others. Staff teach mathematics well. For example, they encourage children to recognise numbers, compare size and count objects in their everyday play experiences. Children arrive happily at the nursery. They form strong bonds with staff and their peers. Children who visit for a taster session are welcomed warmly by staff and thoroughly enjoy joining in play with other children. Managers and staff form positive partnerships with parents and other agencies. They work closely together to meet children’s individual needs. Parents state that they are very happy with the care provided. They describe how their children settle quickly and state that they have seen a big difference in their child’s development since starting. Managers monitor the progress made by individual and groups of children. They provide regular supervision sessions for staff. This helps staff to identify where children may require extra support. All children make good progress. It is not yet outstanding because: Occasionally, children are not supported to continue with their good learning when they become engrossed in activities of their choosing. Children’s play is sometimes interrupted by other directions given by staff. The programme for the professional development of staff is not sharply focused on raising the quality of their practice to the highest levels.
