Bright Stars – Southgate
‘Good’ – Ofsted 2018
“Staff use careful observations to make precise assessments of children’s progress. They use children’s interests effectively to plan interesting activities that help them to achieve the next steps in their development.”
“Staff have a good knowledge of how children learn and develop. The environment is rich in print and posters, and staff provide good-quality resources that help children to practise early writing skills while they play in all areas. Children make consistently good progress in all areas of learning.
“Staff are caring and kind, and form good relationships with children. They get to know children well and attend to their needs promptly. Children benefit from good support to their social and emotional development, and behave well.”
“The manager evaluates the provision to successfully drive improvement, taking into account the views of parents, staff and children.”
“Staff work with parents effectively and act on children’s individual interests. For instance, they have created a ‘dinosaur’ area where children can use their imaginations and develop their learning experiences.”
