Our 'Outstanding' OFSTED Report
OFSTED are the government body that inspect and regulate all childcare settings. We were very proud that at our first inspection of the nursery we were judged as A Good Provider of Daycare.
What did Ofsted have to say about us?Staff know the children and their families very well. They adapt their nursery routines to reflect on children's individual needs. This means that new children settle quickly. Staff display resources attractively and ensure that they are within the children's reach. As a result, children show great independence in choosing what they play with. Babies explore and access a wide range of sensory and musical toys, which develops their learning. Staff consistently reinforce their expectations for children's behaviour. They are excellent role models to children. This means that children learn to behave very well, to make friends, and to get on with others. Staff provide children with excellent opportunities to be active and to manage risks through outdoor play and regular physical activities. Staff teach children about healthy food and lifestyles. Parents comment they are very happy with the nutritious homemade food their children receive.
We are constantly working together as a team to achieve excellent daycare, and welcome our next Ofsted visit. Through open communication with parents we are responsive to feedback and suggestions. We strive to ensure that Footprints Nursery is the very best there is to offer your child.
