Ofsted

Here at Club 4 Kids Childcare we recieved our last Ofsted inspection in March 2013. From this inspection we were graded as an Outstanding setting. Our inspection report can be viewed online at www.ofsted.gov.uk  
 
Here are just a few quotes from our latest report....
 
There is a strong emphasis on supporting children's communication skills in the nursery. Adults' excellent implementation of the 'Every Child's a Talker' programme, and consistent use of signing, results in very confident talkers.
 
The extremely well qualified staff team consistently build on their skills and knowledge by attending relevant training, and sharing information gained with their colleagues. This results in professional and informed staff who are committed to proving an excellent service.
 
Adults are great role models, setting very good examples of enjoying play and learning, motivating children extremely well, picking up on their interests, and extending their play.
 
Staffs' skilful identification of children's enthusiasms, and their expert ability to extend activities, results in children very much enjoying play experiences across all areas of learning.
 
Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities make great progress from their starting points. This is because staff liaise with other professionals and act on their advice, work very well in partnership with parents.
 
Parents' comments demonstrate their great satisfaction in the progress their children make, and many comment on the individual ways in which the nursery has significantly increased children's confidence and communication skills.
 
When babies move from their unit 'up' to the main playroom, their feelings of security are a priority. They first visit for short periods with their key person, and spend time establishing a positive relationship with their new key person. Therefore, when they are ready to make the move, they are settled, confident and ready for the next stages in their learning.
 
Children's ability to keep themselves safe is excellent. Having been shown how to use tools safely, they use real screwdrivers with care to undo screws. During an activity about eating healthily, they use knives and peelers to chop vegetables.
 
The older children chose resources and take activities into the fresh air, into the exciting outdoor area, and especially love digging and exploring the sand area. Indoor daily music and movement sessions further promote their understanding of the importance of exercise.
