Fulham nursery receives Good rating from Ofsted

Date: 27 Jul 2018

Bright Horizons Active Learning Fulham nursery has been rated ‘Good’ after its most recent Ofsted inspection.

The nursery received its inspection on July 4th and was rated as ‘Good’ in all four areas of inspection: Effectiveness of the leadership and management; Quality of teaching, learning and assessment; Personal development, behaviour and welfare and Outcomes for children.

Inspection activities included the inspector observing activities and care routines across all rooms, as well as outdoors. Comments from the report included:

  • Children are happy and confident. Older children eagerly approach staff to show them their work or to invite them into their play. Staff working with babies have a very clear understanding of what interests them and how they learn. They respect their individual routines, helping them to feel safe and secure.
  • Staff develop effective partnerships with parents, who explain that staff are welcoming and provide them with ideas of how they can support their child’s development at home. This helps promote children’s learning and good progress even further.
  • Children enjoy accessing a wide variety of fun activities that challenges their thinking. Staff sit with the children, modelling new vocabulary and encouraging them to try out new things.

“We are pleased that the variety in the children’s activities has been recognised in this positive Ofsted report,” said Nursery Manager Paola Testoni. “We will continue to strive for excellence and make further improvements as we moved forward.”
