Bright Horizons Chigwell Day Nursery and Preschool has been rated ‘Good’ in its recent Ofsted inspection. 

The nursery received its inspection on September 15th and was rated as ‘Good’ in all four areas of inspection: Effectiveness of the leadership and management; Quality of teaching, learning and assessment; Outcomes for children; Personal development, behaviour and welfare.

Inspection activities included the inspectors speaking to parents, staff and children to gather their views about the nursery, as well as speaking to senior manager about the running of the nursery.  Comments from the report included:

  • Teaching is good across the nursery. Staff plan inventive, engaging activities that capture children’s interested and promote their strong development. Children achieve at least as expected for their age and stage of development.
  • The nursery rooms are well laid out with children’s needs in mind and are well maintained to promote children’s safety. 
  • The key person system thoroughly underpins children’s development and well-being. Staff know their children very well and have strong relationships with parents to ensure that they are meeting children’s needs.
