..."Staff recognise children's interests in play.  They effectively use their observations of children's achievements to identify their next steps of development..." (Ofsted 2015)

..."Staff promote children's good health very well..." (Ofsted 2015)

..."Children enjoy playing outside and enthusiastically push their scooters around the playground ..." (Ofsted 2015)

The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (OFSTED) is the non-ministerial government department of Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Schools In England (HMCI). They inspect all early years settings so that they can check on the quality and standards for welfare, learning and development of children which are set out in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

They carry out their inspections with little or no notice to ensure they can see the setting as it normally is. An inspection takes no more than half a day and is carried out by one inspector.

During their visit the inspector will look at how well the children are looked after – whatever their need; how well the setting is led and managed; how children are helped to learn; and how children are helped to develop more generally in their health and social well-being.

They also come up with suggestions to help pre-schools improve their care.

When an inspector’s report is finished, it is sent to the pre-school and made available to all the parents.
