During our most recent inspection (Febuary 2017) Ofsted reported

“The quality of teaching and learning is OUTSTANDING”

This is our third OUTSTANDING Ofsted report.

 ‘OUTSTANDING’ is the highest grade achievable, and only 10% of nurseries in the country have an OUTSTANDING Ofsted grading.      

The following comments are taken from the report: 

"Leadership is inspirational.  The managers demonstrate an uncompromising commitment towards achieving excellence in all areas.

The quality of teaching is outstanding.  Exceptionally knowledgeable staff inspire children with an excellent range of learning opportunities.  Staff give children time to play and astutely plan slightly more challenging ways to develop their ideas.  Outcomes for children are consistently extremely high.  

Children are incredibly motivated.  They eagerly participate in a wide and exciting range of freely chosen and well-planned learning opportunities.  

Relationships in the nursery are superb.  Children develop strong attachments with the staff.  Staff give them their full attention and are incredibly perceptive to changes in children's mood.  Children thrive on the regular praise they receive. This supports children's sense of achievement significantly.  Children demonstrate empathy and respect for other children and demonstrate excellent social skills.

Behaviour is managed extremely well.  Children learn and respond to the expectations of the nursery because the staff sensitively reinforce these at every opportunity.  These are shared with parents so they understand and use the same expectations.  Excellent partnerships with parents ensure they are clear about how they can enhance their children's learning further."
