Summary of key findings for parents

The provision is good • The provider and managers have high expectations of staff and are ambitious and dedicated to their roles. They have a clear vision and are passionate about helping to ensure that children achieve the best outcomes in their learning. • The quality of teaching is overall good and children are supported well in their learning and development. They have access to a wide variety of interesting resources indoors and outdoors. They are confident, highly motivated and enjoy exploring their environment. • There are strong partnerships with parents and other professionals to help to ensure children get the support they need. Staff share comprehensive information regularly with parents regarding children’s care, learning and developmental progress. • Staff visit children in their own home before they start to attend the nursery. They gather information about what children already know and can do. Staff use this information successfully to consider children’s starting points and establish their next steps in learning. • The management team regularly reflects on the quality of the provision. Managers gather the views of parents and children to help to make ongoing improvements to children’s play and learning experiences. • There are strong partnerships with parents and other professionals to help ensure children get the support they need. Staff share comprehensive information regularly with parents about children’s care, learning and developmental progress. It is not yet outstanding because: • Occasionally, activities outdoors are not planned well enough to help children to make the best use of the resources available to build on their learning. • On occasions, staff miss opportunities to extend children’s mathematical skills.
