Thank you to all of our Early Years Practitioners for your hard work and dedication leading up to our inspection! We received glowing praise and feedback from the inspector and we know what we must do to take the next step but we are very proud of all we have achieved in such a short space of time! We will continue to grow and develop and make sure we maintain our high standards of childcare provision.

Summary of key findings for parents:


This provision is good
  • The well-qualified manager is very focused and determined. She and her staff share high expectations for children's enjoyment and achievement during their time in the nursery.
  • Staff work extremely well as a team to create a carefully planned and stimulating environment for all groups of children. Children achieve well during their time in the nursery from their individual starting points. Children are prepared well for the next stage of their education. For example, staff extend children's social skills to a high standard when they visit a local care home and perform for the residents.
  • The children's learning experiences are significantly enriched by the wide range of regular visits and the exciting outdoor area. For example, children not only make regular visits to the beach but also have their own large role-play beach area in the outdoor play shed.


  • Staff make good use of information from parents to accurately assess children's achievement when they first join the nursery. They carefully track children's progress over time to plan challenging activities based securely on children's interests and enthusiasms.
  • Staff successfully help children to develop in independence, confidence and selfawareness. Children are well behaved and inquisitive. Staff promote children's health and well-being well.
  • Procedures for supporting staff's professional development are good overall. However, training opportunities for staff to extend and broaden their teaching strategies to raise the standards of children's achievement even further are limited.
What the setting needs to do to improve further:
  • To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should build on professional development procedures to create further training opportunities to extend teaching strategies, to raise children's standards of achievement even further. 
Inspection activities.
The inspector observed the quality of teaching during activities and assessed the impact this has on children's learning.
  • The inspector spoke with staff and children during the inspection.
  • The inspector completed a joint observation with the nursery manager.
  • The inspector held a meeting with the nursery manager. He looked at relevant documentation and evidence of the suitability of staff working in the nursery.
  • The inspector spoke to parents during the inspection and took account of their views.
