Woodlands Day Nursery receives Outstanding rating from Ofsted

Date: 17 Jul 2017

Bright Horizons Asquith Woodlands Day Nursery in Tunbridge Wells has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ after receiving its recent Ofsted inspection report.

The nursery received its inspection on June 1st and was rated as ‘Outstanding’ in all four areas of inspection: Effectiveness of the leadership and management; Quality of teaching, learning and assessment; Personal development, behaviour and welfare; Outcomes for children.

Inspection activities included the inspector observing staff interact with children and looking at both the indoor and outdoor environments. Comments from the report included:

  • Staff establish extraordinarily positive partnerships with parents and keep them exceptionally well informed. For instance, they encourage them to take home learning bags weekly to share ideas, such as how to plant and grow healthy foods.
  • Children have excellent opportunities to develop their early writing skills. For example, they independently write what they see on daily nature hunts.  
  • The manager expertly monitors the quality of care and teaching. She provides staff with daily quizzes to ensure that they have an exceptional knowledge of practice and routinely sets very challenging individual targets for them to meet.
“Myself and the team here at Woodlands are thrilled and absolutely over the moon with our Outstanding Ofsted report,” said Nursery Manager Pam Webber. “The hard work and dedication by all has really paid off with this wonderful recognition from Ofsted.”
