OFSTED at Little Echoes Children’s Day Nursery

What is Ofsted you may well ask, it stands for Office for Standards in Education.

Ofsted - Better Education and Care

Each nursery and child care provider must follow the National Standards for Under Eights Day Care and Child minding regulations. Each of the fourteen standards describes a particular quality outcome and has a set of criteria giving information as to how that outcome is to be achieved. This is how Ofsted inspections are carried out assessing each educational setting against these set criteria.

Following five weeks in our new location, we had an unannounced inspection. We are extremely proud of the results, achieving areas of both 'excellent' and 'good'.

The inspector commented that 'Children feel safe and secure due to the caring and responsive approach of staff'. The organisation of all play areas is 'exceptional'. For full details of the report log on to the Ofsted website.

OFSTED Inspection 2015: -

More recently in 2015 we were pleased to announce the outcome of their inspection as OUTSTANDING.

To achieve outstanding is a huge accolade that cannot be achieved without the commitment and dedication of the nursery team. An achievement at this level acknowledges all our hard work and reinforces our commitment to provide high quality childcare in the community.

Ofsted always arrive without any prior warning and spends the day observing the staff, checking planning and assessment and all the legal requirements. It’s always a very stressful day and can be very daunting. However we continued our day as normal.
