Ofsted inspection results (November 2017)
Friday 19th January 2018
As you will know Ofsted came to us for a full inspection on Friday 13th October 2017. I am proud to announce that we gained a rating of GOOD.
A paper copy of the report can be found on the Parents Notice Board in the lobby to the pre-school. The report link will also be added to our pre-school website and Facebook page.
Comments from Julie Bright the Ofsted Inspector include:
· They respond well to families and professionals to achieve good-quality teaching, learning and care.
· Children enjoy their time at the pre-school….. Strong emotional attachments have a positive effect on the way children develop, particularly in their self-esteem.
I would like to thank all the staff that continually strives to provide the best for the children that attend Courtney Ladybirds Pre-School. They work so hard to provide a fun, enjoyable provision whilst supporting the children to learn, grow and develop. Also a big thank you to the committee that give up their time to ensure the pre-school can run as effectively as possible, you give so much to the pre-school which takes up your free time and it is so greatly appreciated, thank you.
And I cannot possibly not mention you; the parents, families and children that attend our pre-school and are a fantastic part of the Courtney Ladybirds Family. Our Ofsted Inspection back in January 2017 was not one that we feel we deserved and there was great disappointment at the time, however the families have continued to believe in us and all that we do to make this a wonderful place of care, learning and education for the children in our community. Thank you for continuing to support us at the pre-school and we are so pleased that you chose us to provide your child’s early years education.
I am looking forward to all the great experiences and lots of learning through play that we will be providing for the children this year and continuing to support them in their pre-school journey along with great partnerships with parents and carers.
