Well this week has been busy for me, posting blogs and sending out press releases to announce all the positive Ofsted reports, this time we are acknowledging all the hard work of Patsy Monahan and her team at Warwick after they received a GOOD rating from Ofsted, narrowly missing out on OUTSTANDING!
The Warwick day nursery, situated in an elegant Georgian listed building, received the good news, digested the report and immediately set about making the necessary changes to get that “outstanding” rating next time round.
Some of the key factors that resulted in the very positive report were…
- High priority is given to promoting babies’ and children’s sense of belonging in reassuring, welcoming surroundings. Good information sharing between staff and parents about babies’ and children’s backgrounds, characters and interests ensure staff get to know and settle children well and offer them relevant enjoyable activities.
- Staff make learning fun and rewarding for babies and children. They organise a wealth of interesting activities at nursery, outdoors and within the local community.
- Pre-school children, in particular, are enthusiastic and effective learners who eagerly respond to the staffs’ often imaginative teaching and high expectations. They ensure children are confident, articulate, creative and well prepared for full-time education.
So, once again, huge congratulations from everyone at Monkey Puzzle Towers, we are all very proud of Patsy and the team.
