Key strengths of the centre

  • Inquisitive, motivated and thoughtful children who are developing outstanding skills as young citizens.
  • Children’s exceptionally strong progress across all areas of their learning.
  • Innovative approaches to developing the curriculum which results in dynamic and individualised learning experiences.
  • Highly effective approaches to supporting children and their families, including those whose first language is not English.
  • The inclusive and multi-cultural ethos which helps all children fulfil their potential.
  • The leadership and dedication of staff at all levels which results in a nurturing and extremely happy nursery.

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:

  • Continue to maintain the exceptionally high standards of learning and care for all children.

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 evaluative visits in connection with this inspection. During the inspection, we identified aspects of innovative practice which we would like to explore further in order to share the practice with others. As a result we will work with the pre-school centre and local authority in order to record and share more widely the innovative practice.
