Staff and Children at Tops Bournemouth, onsite at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital, are pleased to be celebrating a GOOD rating from Ofsted following their recent inspection.
Tops Bournemouth Day nursery & preschool are truly passionate about providing a great quality of Early Education and Care for all our children and pride themselves in having a safe, secure and family centred environment.
According to the Ofsted report, ‘Children are happy, engaged and motivated in their learning. They participate in a wide range of activities tailored to their individual needs and interests. They benefit from positive interactions from skilled staff who ensure they are providing appropriate challenges to enable children to make the best possible progress’.
The report also noted that; ‘There is strong leadership within the nursery. The manager supports staff well and has a good knowledge of the curriculum, understanding what children are learning and what they need to learn next. She has regular meetings with staff both individually and as a group. Staff report that they feel valued and respected and confident to share their ideas’.
The inspector said, “Staff use children’s interests and repeated patterns of play to engage them in a wide variety of activities to help children make good progress. Children are confident to talk to visiting adults about what they most enjoy and the adults that support them”.
“All staff in the nursery have completed safeguarding training. The management team places a high emphasis on child protection and talks about safeguarding at every meeting. In addition, during one-to-one meetings, they talk about various aspects of safeguarding to make sure staff knowledge is up to date. There are clear policies and procedures for staff to follow in the event of a concern with a child’s welfare. Senior members of staff have additional training as they are the designated safeguarding leads”.
Stacey Nash, Senior Nursery Manager at Tops Bournemouth said, “We are all so proud of the outcome, the team work hard, are continually training and developing and we all want to ensure all of the children who are in care meet their full potential”.
