“Leaders, managers and practitioners work hard to achieve the best possible outcomes for children. Children make good progress. They show that they feel safe and happy in the care of the attentive practitioners.”
“The nursery building is secure and practitioners identify and minimise hazards to children effectively. As a result, children play and explore safely. The well-qualified practitioners are keen to enhance their professional skills. For example, practitioners new to working with babies used what they learned at training to review the organisation of the room and equipment. They now think more carefully about which toys they put out each day and why. As a result, teaching is planned more precisely to promote what individual children need to learn next.”
“Practitioners are friendly and welcoming and this helps children to settle in and thrive. Children follow consistent routines and this helps them to learn to respect other people. For example, pre-school children know that they must wait for their turn to pick a nursery rhyme card out of the bag at group time. Practitioners teach children to be safe. Practitioners implement policies and procedures that help to promote children's welfare. For example, they share important information about accidents and incidents with parents.”
