Key strengths of the school

  • Confident, happy and motivated children who enjoy nursery and engage well in their learning.
  • Caring staff, led effectively by the manager, in creating a welcoming, nurturing ethos.
  • Use of the outdoors to support children’s learning.
  • Positive links with parents and the local community.

We discussed with staff and the education authority how they might continue to improve the pre-school centre. This is what we agreed with them.

  • Increase the pace of developing the curriculum for all ages.
  • Involve children more in planning and developing their learning and ways of recording this.
  • Continue to develop approaches to self-evaluation including tracking children’s progress.

What happens at the end of the inspection?

We are satisfied with the overall quality of provision. We are confident that the pre school centre’s self evaluation processes are leading to improvements. As a result, we will make no further visits in connection with this inspection. As part of the arrangements for reporting to parents on the quality of the pre-school centre, the local authority will inform parents about the pre-school centre’s progress.
