‘Good’ – Ofsted, 2022

“Children are happy and settled in this inclusive environment. Children build secure bonds with the caring staff, who welcome them warmly. This helps them to feel safe and secure and promotes their emotional well-being. Children who join the nursery quickly adapt to the new environment and routines because their key persons support them well.”

“The new manager has a clear vision for the setting and how to support children’s learning and development. She has a good understanding of children’s experiences outside of the nursery. She explains the importance of providing plenty of outdoor play to support children’s health and well-being, as many do not have access to a garden at home.”

“Children put forward their views about the nursery at the weekly ‘children’s council’. Staff value children’s ideas and use their requests to help enhance the curriculum. For example, the provider has employed outside professionals to provide football and dance sessions for children.”

“Children learn social skills, such as how to share and take turns. Babies discover that being part of a group is fun, as they enjoy songs and rhymes together. Older children share ideas and cooperate during imaginative role play. They say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and use good manners at mealtimes.”

“Parents speak of staff as an asset to the nursery. They describe them as friendly and say that they care for children well. Parents recognise the improvements that the manager has implemented, particularly around the sharing of information about children’s care and learning. ”
