OFSTED REPORT - Colby Road Nursery




We are delighted to have been graded 'GOOD' across the board in our most recent Ofsted report:


''The nursery is small and intimate and has a homely feel. Children settle quickly from when they first arrive. Some as young as a year old, who have only been attending for three weeks, are happy to come to nursery. The nursery is very much a part of the local community. The rooms are well resourced with age-appropriate toys. The staff are warm and welcoming and know the children well. Children show enthusiasm and engage well in high-quality literacy opportunities, such as song time, and a variety of books are available. There is a large garden and children enjoy using the climbing, riding and balancing equipment to develop their physical skills. 

Practitioners think ahead to challenge the children and ensure they are making progress. Routines are well established and children thrive, knowing what is happening next. Children are independent in their play, dressing dolls and choosing books to look at. They feel heard and supported by the staff, who respond to the individual needs of each child. Staff work closely with parents to provide continuity in children's care routines and their learning. Parents praise the good care provided to their children and say that they enjoy attending.'
