Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good Many children start at the setting with levels of speech and personal and social development that are less than typical for their age. By the time children leave, they have made good progress given their starting points and are catching up well. Staff routinely go above and beyond to help ensure that disadvantaged children and their families are supported to get any additional help they need. Staff quickly and accurately identify children who need additional support. Robust links with other professionals are used effectively to develop a swift and shared approach to planning for children’s individual needs. Children enthusiastically explore and investigate an excellent range of accessible, well- presented play materials that promote continuous learning. The manager has created a culture of vigilance, where children’s safety and well-being is central to everything the nursery does. Positive relationships between staff provide a good model for children to learn about how to behave towards others. Staff continuously promote good behaviour and implement consistent strategies to manage incidents of unwanted behaviour. It is not yet outstanding because: The most-able children in the nursery are not always provided with opportunities that fully extend and challenge their learning to the highest levels. Staff do not always make the most of opportunities to work with parents before children start, to help gather precise information about what children already know and can do.
