Ofsted Report

We were rated ‘Good’ in our latest Ofsted inspection

Some of the comments made about our nursery and the childcare we provide that we are particularly proud of include:

  • The setting engages effectively with parents and the local community. They have good partnerships with schools and other services. Parents speak highly of the setting and the support they provide for the children and their families.
  • Staff provide children with a wide range of opportunities to develop their physical skills. For example, children enjoy climbing and balancing on suitable equipment. Babies and toddlers use tools to fill and empty containers or to mix play dough. Children are physically active and show good levels of control and coordination.
  • The setting is committed to sustainable practice and teaches the children about looking after their environment. Children learn to plant seeds and grow their own vegetables. Staff teach them where food comes from and how to have a healthy diet. Children also have opportunities to cook their own food.
  • Staff support the personal needs and routines of the babies and toddlers. They encourage children to be independent in their self-help skills. As a result, older children are learning how to take care of themselves. They use the toilet and wash their hands independently, serve their own food, pour drinks and return their dishes after eating
