Children at Mama Bear’s Day Nursery and Pre-school in Soundwell, Bristol will benefit from a two-year funding scheme after their nursery was awarded a 'Good' rating by Ofsted during its latest inspection.
The nursery improved from ‘Satisfactory’ to ‘Good’ following its latest inspection meaning that all eligible two-year-olds at the nursery will benefit from year-round funded places entitling them to 12-hours off free childcare a week.
Mama Bear's Day Nursery (Soundwell) is a purpose-built setting with a custom designed garden is divided into three age groups, catering for children aged under-two and up to five-years-old.
Manager of the Pembroke Road nursery, Emma Plucknett, commented: “We are delighted to have achieved a Good Ofsted rating in our latest inspection. We have worked really hard to develop the nursery over the past year both in terms of the setting itself and in our teaching practises. For example we have used extra funding to help children make better progress in their mathematical development.
“I was really pleased to see that the inspector noted the children as motivated and enjoying their time at nursery and that the leadership and management are good. We are committed to finding the very best childcare practitioners so to be named ‘highly motivated, caring and enthusiastic’ is great.
“At Mama Bear’s we pride ourselves on offering outstanding care and tailoring that care to each individual child’s needs. It is so lovely to see each child develop during their time with us before they go off to school.”
The nursery’s latest Ofsted inspection report highlighted the nursery’s effectiveness in helping children to settle quickly in their new ‘welcoming and stimulating environment’, and praised staff for their ability to confidently assess children’s abilities, needs interests and future learning using regular observations of children as they play.
