Inspection Report

Overall Summary

  • Staff provide children with a broad range of interesting activities. They use children’s
    interests well to offer activities that children enjoy greatly. Staff assess children
    regularly and make good use of this information to provide suitably challenging
    activities. Children make good progress.
  • Children have a wide variety of good physical development opportunities where they
    jump, run, learn to balance and to throw and catch objects with increasing skill.
  • Staff manage children’s behaviour well. They share group rules with children and
    explain why certain behaviour is not acceptable.
  • Staff work effectively with parents. They provide regular updates on their children’s
    progress and provide good ways for parents to support children’s learning
  • The manager supports the staff well. She meets up with staff individually to discuss their
    training and work needs. Staff attended a course on letters and sounds which has led
    to improvements in children’s early literacy skills.
  • The manager has good insight into how well the nursery is performing and has
    identified key goals to drive ongoing improvements

Effectiveness of leadership and management is good

  • Safeguarding is effective. Staff have a good understanding of what they need to do if
    they have any concerns about a child’s welfare. They ensure children are kept safe. Staff
    check all toys and resources and all parts of the nursery regularly to help prevent
    accidents.
  • The manager carries out comprehensive background checks during the
    recruitment process to help ensure that staff are suitable for their roles. The staff-to-child ratio meets requirements and the staff are deployed well to ensure children are
    kept safe.
  • The manager monitors the nursery effectively. For instance, she routinely
    checks planning and assessment records to identify and provide support to children
    requiring additional help. She visits all group rooms to observe staff practice and offers
    feedback to improve skills.

Personal development, behaviour and welfare are good

  • Staff have strong, caring relationships with children. They get to know children well by
    finding out about their interests and home care routines. They use this information to
    provide activities that support children’s well-being effectively.
  • Staff help children to gain good independence skills. Older children help to lay lunch tables, serve themselves and pour their own drinks. Staff teach younger children to feed and dress themselves.
  • Children have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe. For example, they
    mop up water spills to help prevent accidents. Staff teach children about road safety to
    help ensure that children act with care and caution when crossing the road.

Outcomes for children are good

  • Children are confident and motivated to learn. They respect themselves and others from
    different racial or religious backgrounds.
  • Children have good counting skills and secure knowledge of shape names. Younger children have a developing awareness of quantity.
  • Children learn to share and to take turns well. They learn valuable skills to support the
    next stage of their learning.
