Summary of key findings for parents:
This provision is good

  • Staff provide interesting and stimulating activities for children. Children easily access a wide variety of resources which supports different areas of learning. They become motivated and independent learners. All children make good progress from their different starting points.
  • Partnerships with parents and other professionals are highly effective. Families are fully included in children’s ongoing learning and parents speak incredibly highly of their experiences of the setting. Staff regularly exchange information with parents to ensure consistency in children’s experiences between home and nursery.
  • Staff are excellent role models. They consistently praise children’s achievements and promote their self-esteem. Children display high levels of confidence and learn how to form positive friendships. They are extremely happy and settled in the pre-school.
  • The manager effectively reflects on the provision to drive improvements. The views of staff, parents and children are gathered and used to enhance children’s learning experiences. This helps to improve outcomes for children.
