Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The dedicated and enthusiastic manager considers the views of staff, parents and children when evaluating the nursery. She carefully plans further improvements in her drive to provide the highest quality of provision. • Staff support children to develop their communication, social and physical skills well. They are aware of children’s interests and use this information well to provide activities that children find interesting and highly engaging, overall. • Staff provide stimulating environments for children. They have a wide variety of play materials, indoors and outdoors, readily available for the children to use independently. Children are confident in making choices about what they want to do. • Staff have good relationships with parents. They regularly share information with them about what children do and learn. Staff make suggestions about how parents can support their child’s learning further at home. This contributes successfully to children’s good progress. It is not yet outstanding because: • Recently introduced systems that support staff in ensuring that activities are meticulously matched to children’s current levels of development and help them make even better progress are not yet fully embedded. • Occasionally, staff working with older children do not capitalise on opportunities to encourage children to practise and develop their mathematical skills further as they play.
