This accomplishment is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our wonderful staff and the support we receive from our amazing families.

Key Highlights from the Inspection Report:

Promoting Child-Led Learning: The report notes, “Staff promote opportunities for children to lead activities and learn from one another.” Our children are confident explorers, embracing unfamiliar activities with enthusiasm, thanks to the efforts of our devoted staff.

Tailoring Curriculum to Interests: The inspection found, “Children share their interests with staff, who use this information to plan the curriculum.” Our team actively engages with children to discover their interests, ensuring a curriculum that caters to each child’s unique preferences.

As we celebrate our ‘Good’ rating, we are equally mindful of areas for improvement. These include the need to strengthen the promotion of children’s independence, fostering their ability to do things for themselves. Additionally, there is a focus on supporting our dedicated staff to elevate children’s speaking skills to the highest level throughout the nursery. We are committed to addressing these aspects with a proactive action plan, ensuring continuous growth and refinement in our commitment to providing exceptional care and education.
