Dizzy Ducks’ Harlow Nursery Graded as ‘Good’ by OFSTED
Dizzy Ducks Day Nurseries continues to show it is one of the best nursery chains in Essex by becoming a finalist for 'Best Nursery and Preschool 2016' by Essex Mums and ‘Training Programme of the Year’ at the Nursery Management Today awards.
Dizzy Ducks Day Nursery in Harlow recently underwent an OFSTED Inspection and we are pleased to announce that we received an overall Early Years Provision of Good.
The nursery’s progress has also been acknowledged by Essex Mums, who once again voted the nursery chain as one of the top 4 nursery/preschools in Essex. Industry experts Nursery Management Today have also shortlisted the nursery chain for the best ‘Training and Development Programme’ award with the awards announced on 25th November 2016.
‘Managers set high standards’ at the Harlow nursery
The OFSTED report highlighted the following aspects:
- Staff focus learning on children’s social skills. For example, children are encouraged to listen to each other while eating their lunch. They patiently wait their turn and answer questions about what their food tastes like. This means that they are effectively gaining the skills they will need for school and the next steps in their lives.
- New children are sensitively supported as they become familiar with the staff and play area. Young children are [also] caring towards each other.
- Children are given many opportunities to be creative. They listen to the different sounds that instruments make, pretend to build outdoors with bricks and tools and imagine going on a bear hunt. Consequently, they explore and use a variety of ways to express themselves.
- Self-evaluation is robust. Managers set high standards and regularly challenge their own processes in order to make improvements for the children’s care and learning.
Jade Power, nursery manager said “I am really proud of the staff and the improvements we’ve seen at the nursery. My aim is to continue to make further improvement and to build closer relationships with parents and key workers.”
