London nursery receives ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted

Date: 17 Sep 2018

Bright Horizons Tabard Square Day Nursery and Preschool has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ after receiving its recent Ofsted inspection.

The nursery received its inspection on August 21st 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. The ‘Outstanding’ is also an improvement on the ‘Good’ rating the nursery received from Ofsted two years ago.

Inspection activities included the inspector observing the quality of interactions between staff and children, and assessing the impacts of that on children’s learning. Comments from the Ofsted report included:

  • Children show high levels of enjoyment and engage in consistently stimulating activities in the very well-resourced environment. Their emotional well-being is very successfully supported by a caring staff, who meet children’s individual needs exceptionally well.
  • Parents speak very highly of the service provided. They greatly value the way staff provide tailored and individual care and closely involve them in their children’s learning. One parent comments that, ‘It feels like home’.
  • Staff provide exemplary opportunities for children to develop a very good understanding of how to keep themselves and others safe. Children rapidly learn how to manage risks and challenges.
Nursery Manager, Jennifer Gagg, commented: “The whole nursery is over the moon at receiving an ‘Outstanding’, we pride ourselves on offering exceptional care and education to the children and families we serve, and it’s lovely to have this recognised by Ofsted in a glowing report.”
