Our 2015 Ofsted review highlighted a number of key strengths that both the management team and staff at Kinders Mill Day Nursery help to maintain.
Below are some of the key findings highlighted in our recent Ofsted Report:
- The quality of teaching is outstanding. Staff have a superb understanding of how children learn and develop. They provide highly stimulating activities that are extremely focused on the individual needs and interests of each child. Young children experiment, mixing textures, such as large ice blocks with rice. Older children learn to speak in French and solve complex mathematical problems.
- The leadership and management are inspirational. They use self-evaluation extremely well to continually reflect on the service they provide, identify improvements and successfully driving them forward. This results in a committed workforce that continually raises the quality of the service they provide in ways that have the maximum positive impact for children.
- Staff form excellent partnerships with parents. They highly value parents as their children's first educators and involve them in every aspect of their children's learning. Parents are extremely well informed, support their children's learning at home and take an active role in their children's development. Parents describe the staff as brilliant.
- Children show a superb understanding about leading healthy lifestyles. Young children fall asleep and wake contently. This helps them to be emotionally and physically ready to thrive in their learning. Children enjoy a wide range of nutritious freshly prepared meals and snacks made from organic ingredients.
