Staff and Children at Tops Devonport are pleased to be celebrating a GOOD rating from Ofsted following their recent inspection.
According to the Ofsted report, Children feel safe and secure and confidently explore the variety of spaces inside and outside at the nursery. Moreover, children are well behaved and understand the expectations of the setting. They respond well to the staff and remind each other of the rules as they play. Babies form attachments to staff, who support them and follow their personal routines.
The report also noted that the setting has high expectations and staff support children well, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, to make good progress in their learning and development. This helps to prepare children with the necessary skills and knowledge for later learning.
The inspector said ‘The newly appointed manager has a strong ambition to deliver high-quality care and education for all children who attend the setting. She uses additional funding to give children access to outdoor learning at forest school sessions. She has made good progress in her short time at the setting and staff feel well supported. Staff are warm and caring towards the children and they treat them with affection. When babies are upset, staff give them cuddles and reassurance’.
Ciara Fagan, Nursery Manager of Tops Devonport said ‘I am extremely proud of the staff here a Tops Devonport, we worked as a team and are over the moon with our results! We would like to thank our families and children for the ongoing support we appreciate you all’
