What Does the Good Ofsted Report Say?
According to the Ofsted report, ‘The manager has a clear curriculum intent. She works well with staff to monitor children’s development, identify gaps, and put in place focused targeted to help children catch up, where necessary. They plan a successful learning environment and give children a wide range of experiences.
The report also noted that; ‘Staff identify children’s particular interests and preferences for learning, using them effectively to engage and motivate them. From recent training, staff carefully plan how they can implement their ethos of an eco-friendly environment. Children now grow, harvest, and eat their own produce’.
The inspector said, “Staff speak calmly and positively to children; they are kind and reassuring, valuing children and showing them respect. They consistently implement their behaviour management systems so that children understand their expectations, behave well, and learn to manage their emotions”.
“The strong management team evaluate their practice successfully, including seeking parent and staff feedback”.
Camila Tavares, Nursery Manager at Tops Mini Mariners said, “I am so proud of my team, we have all worked extremely hard and this result means it has all paid off. We cannot wait to see what the future holds, we already have some great ideas to ensure we are offering the best Early Education and Care possible”.
