Our excellent day nursery in Ealing has just received the results of their first ever Ofsted report and it was, drum roll please….
It is extremely difficult to achieve an “outstanding” status on any nursery’s first Ofsted inspection, so huge congratulations to owner Barbara Chan, Manager Biljana Dokmanovic and all the staff.
The location for the modern detached nursery is on little Ealing Lane within 5 minutes walking distance of Northfields Tube Station. Since it’s recent opening it has gone from strength to strength providing quality childcare for the area, which has been highlighted in the Ofsted report.
The key points highlighted by the report which helped them achieve a “good” rating were:
- Children enjoy their play and make good progress in their learning and development because staff know how children learn and provide appropriate and challenging learning experiences for them.
- Children benefit from a welcoming, enabling and stimulating environment, which has a range of good quality toys and resources to help promote learning in all areas.
- The nursery promotes the children’s welfare because staff effectively implement the safe guarding and welfare requirements.
- Children benefit from secure attachments to their key person and other staff. As a result, they are relaxed, happy and have a strong sense of belonging.
But it wouldn’t be fair to report this without outlining why we weren’t awarded an “outstanding” rating, would it?
The ONLY reason why “it is not yet outstanding” is…
“Children have fewer opportunities to see words on display in their home languages to support their early literacy and to promote a sense of belonging and diversity for everyone.”
But guess what…
We are putting into action a plan that will correct that, so next time we will be OUTSTANDING!
