A GOOD result From Ofsted at Topsie Gillingham

Staff and Children at Topsie Gillingham are celebrating a GOOD result from the Ofsted Report following their recent inspection.

Topsie Gillingham 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.

What did the Ofsted Report mention?

According to the Ofsted report, ‘Staff provide a calm, welcoming and exciting play space for children. The learning environment has been carefully thought through, and children benefit from the home-from-home feel. Staff greet children warmly at the start of each session. Children enter enthusiastically and engage in play and learning immediately’.

The report also noted that;

‘There is a well-thought-out curriculum that is designed to successfully prepare children for future learning, including moving on to school. Staff provide good opportunities for children to be independent, confident, resilient, and social, enabling children to develop positive relationships with others. For example, at lunchtime, children chatter happily as they peel their fruit and sing songs. When they need help, they are confident to ask, but always have a go first. Children help to look after their own needs and show pride in their achievements’.

The inspector said, “There are good partnerships with parents. Effective communication enables parents and staff to share and gain information about the children. Staff provide ways that parents can extend their children’s learning at home. Parents talk positively about their children’s experiences and the links they have with their child’s key person”.

Natasha Holgate, Senior Nursery Manager at Topsie Gillingham said; “This Ofsted grade is a testament to the unwavering dedication and teamwork of our incredible staff. Their commitment to the children’s care and their early years education shines through, and I couldn’t be prouder of their hard work and passion”.
