Our Nursery is registered with Ofsted, which is the governing regulatory body and has been rated as Good. A quote from the inspector was that we are not just a ‘good’ nursery, we are a ‘Good’ Good nursery.

A quote from the report – Staff recognise the uniqueness of each child. They have a warm and caring approach towards the children. Babies and young children settle quickly when they arrive at the nursery. They develop secure attachments with staff andhappily become involved in play.

Staff will work closely with you to ensure that children learn and develop through play and from finding out their individual interests so that learning is enjoyable, enriching and exciting for your child. Within this framework there are specific guidelines that we adhere to, ensuring that the nursery is run safely, that children are secure in their learning and develop good relationships with their key person and other staff. From recruitment, to daily risk assessments and record keeping, all staff andleadership are fully trained in safeguarding your child.
