Childcare Manager

What Ofsted say....


The dedicated manager is passionate about the quality of care her well-qualified staff team provide for parents and children. She invites others to contribute their views regarding the overall quality of the pre-school. She uses this information well to identify and address emerging areas of development.


Children work collaboratively with one another on chosen tasks. They engage well in play. Children build large structures in the outdoors area. They take turns to walk along the lines of wooden blocks. This helps children to develop good physical skills.


Children are well settled. Staff visit children in their own home prior to starting the setting. They provide home learning bags containing storybooks and props. This helps parents to continue their children's learning at home. Staff regularly share information with parents regarding their child's progress.


Children are independent. They manage small tasks appropriate to their age and stage of development. Children choose their own healthy snacks and tidy away their dishes. They manage their self-care needs well and learn to follow good hygiene practices.


Children make good progress. They are confident and make regular choices in their play. Children use marker pens and dry wipe boards. They create their own drawings and excitedly show others what they have drawn. This helps to promote children's literacy skills. Children wear hard hats and use pretend tools in the construction area. They immerse themselves into the roles of others. Children learn about important people who help us and develop an understanding of the roles of the different emergency services. Children are prepared well for their future learning and school when the time comes.
