IT really is all child’s play for a Filey nursery after it landed a terrific Ofsted report.
Filey Childcare, in Filey Children’s Centre, was rated ‘Good’ by inspectors, with added ‘Outstanding’ aspects.
The report said the centre, in Padbury Avenue, offered exemplary safety for youngsters and offered a sound platform for them to make a positive contribution to their Early Year Foundation learning.
The inspector’s findings read: “Children are very safe and secure and enjoy their time in the welcoming setting.
“They are enthusiastic learners and are developing good skills for the future.
“The demonstrate high levels of independence, confidence and self-esteem and show excellent attitudes to learning as they play with their friends.
“They are making good progress towards their goals because the staff are skilful and have detailed knowledge of each child’s needs and interests.
“As a result, children display extremely high levels of well-being, confidence and independence.
“Safeguarding procedures are excellent and leadership has a clear vision and commitment to continuous improvement.
“Excellent partnerships with parents and carers are established and children transfer to the school nursery smoothly because of the very strong links established with the school.”
However, the report did identify one area of improvement, with a need to assess learning through rhyme and rhythm.
It added: “Children show a fondness for books as they are made readily available, they build good foundations, however, progress in developing phonological awareness is less secure.”
