Ofsted Inspection 2016...

The new manager and owner have implemented strong professional development processes for staff since the last inspection. Supervisions procedures are now embedded. They identify areas for developing teaching standards that impact positively on children’s learning.

Staff have high expectations of children. They show a positive regard to the achievements children make and they celebrate these readily. This helps to boost children’s confidence and self-esteem.

Babies and children are happy and secure within the building. They have developed strong bonds with staff, who are caring and attentive to their needs. This contributes to their emotional wellbeing.
