Ofsted reports: Consistently outstanding

We are proud that our focus on creating the best environment for developing children have been recognised and praised. Childsplay was judged ‘Outstanding’ for the 3rd consecutive inspection on 19th March 2013.  The quality and standards of the early year’s provision stated that:

  • Clear leadership and highly effective monitoring and supervision of staff, ensures that children are safe and extremely well-protected and nurtured as they make significant gains in their learning.
  • Children's overall physical development and well-being is effectively supported.  They take part in an abundance of challenging opportunities in the outdoors, using the natural environment and real and recyclable objects.  Consequently, they carry out their plans and ideas very successfully.
  • Children play in a highly stimulating environment and staff plan activities extremely well based on children's interests.  Therefore, children are highly motivated and fully involved in what they do so that they make excellent progress.
  • The manager and deputy are longstanding and highly dedicated to the children, staff and parents and ensure that they maintain exceptionally high standards.   The already high quality care and education for children continues to improve and develop further through well-targeted action plans.
