We are very proud to announce that our Shortlands nursery recently recieved a glowing report from Ofsted in December 2017. They have recognised all areas as outstanding! We would like to thank our dedicated management team & staff for all the hard work to go above and beyond to create a loving stimulating environment for the children, each & every day!
Summary of key findings for parents This provision is outstanding
The qualified staff make extremely effective use of training to further enhance their professional knowledge. For example, staff in the baby room have gained a better understanding of how babies develop thinking skills. This has prompted them to provide more challenging activities which stimulate babies' problem-solving abilities.
Staff work exceptionally well with parents. They are particularly effective at exchanging information about children's learning. For instance, they regularly email parents with updates about their children's progress. Parents express how the information they receive strengthens their understanding of how to support their children's learning at home.
Children of all ages thrive in the highly nurturing environment provided by staff. Their physical and emotional needs are extremely well supported throughout their time at nursery. This begins with excellent procedures to help them settle in when they first join. They develop strong attachments with their key persons, which helps them feel confident and secure.
Children make consistently good progress from their starting points, with some children exceeding the expectations for their age. Where children's learning is not where it should be, this is quickly identified through the excellent monitoring systems. Effective partnership working between parents, staff and other professionals helps to secure the best possible outcomes for all children.
