Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good

  • The manager effectively uses reflective practice to drive forward improvements. She seeks the views of staff, parents and children to help her to evaluate the provision. She uses their suggestions and comments to determine ways to improve the quality of experiences for children continually. 
  • The manager implements a rigorous system for the support and supervision of staff. She offers support and advice on an ongoing basis. Staff value this level of support to help them improve their skills and knowledge. 
  • Staff's assessment of what children know and can do is accurate and completed regularly. Staff know children well and plan suitably challenging activities to help children achieve their next steps in learning.  Staff effectively engage with parents to support children's learning in the nursery and at home. Parents contribute well to the initial assessment of their children's learning. Staff keep parents regularly informed of children's learning and progress. 
  • The stimulating environment keeps children motivated and interested. Children experience a wide range of opportunities to learn across all areas as they move around, confidently choosing what they would like to do next. 
  • Children enthusiastically learn to identify and manage risk. Staff encourage them to take responsibility for carrying out safety checks of their outdoor learning environment.

 

It is not yet outstanding because:  Staff do not always make the most of opportunities to extend children's mathematical awareness further.

What we have done

Introduced and have now embedded, Problem solving to mathematics.

We have been working very closely as a company with Neil Griffiths, an educational consultant who specialises in mathematics for children, and together we have devised yet another successful enhancement which will benefit each and every single child within our care.
