The staff at Kiddi Caru’s Peterborough day nursery are celebrating after the nursery received an outstanding rating from Ofsted.
Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages. They carry out a large number of inspections and regulatory visits across England.
The report highlighted that leaders and staff all positively share and promote a joint passion and dedication to providing the best possible care and education for all children. All aspects of the nursery are consistently reviewed and evaluated to ensure children benefit from a continually evolving provision.
It also noted that staff are highly skilled at helping children form secure emotional attachments. The younger children, in particular, show true love and affection for their key persons and form very close bonds. Children's emotional well-being is highly prioritised especially during times of change, such as moving on to the next room or school.
Also highlighted was the fact that the teaching is excellent. Staff are enthusiastic, motivated and highly supportive to children during their activities. They are highly skilled at recognising and taking advantage of children's play interests as they happen to promote and extend their learning.
The report found that the range of activities for children inspires and excites them, making them eager to learn. Babies freely explore their environment, investigating toys and activities that interest them. Older children are enthusiastic to look for insects and creatures in the garden. They enjoy sensory play, adding toothpaste and herbs to their dough creations.
Chia Wallace, Nursery Manager, said: “We’re all absolutely delighted with this new report from Ofsted. Our aim at all times is to provide the highest standard of care to give the children who come here the very best start in life, so to have achieved an outstanding Ofsted rating is brilliant. I’m very proud of the team here, and they should be extremely proud of themselves too. They all do a fantastic job and without them the nursery would not be able to provide such a wonderful offering for the children and their parents.”
