This provision is good Staff demonstrate good teaching with children of different ages. They plan a good range of indoor and outdoor activities to help children to develop positive attitudes towards learning. The provider and staff are committed to providing a fully inclusive service which is at the heart of all they do. Staff work closely in partnership with other professionals to ensure that all children’s individual needs are fully met. Staff place a strong focus on supporting children’s personal, social and emotional development. They provide good levels of support and key persons work effectively with children in small groups. This enables both the staff and children to build strong and trusting relationships. Staff plan transitions well to support children’s seamless move on to school. Children are well prepared for school by the time they leave the nursery. All staff regularly undertake training to strengthen their practice. They share detailed information with parents about the setting. Self-evaluation is embedded into daily practice and includes the views of parents to help ensure children receive positive experiences. It is not yet outstanding because: Staff miss opportunities to develop children’s interest in the outdoor area to promote their sensory development. Younger children are not always able to be as independent as possible when leading their own play and learning.
