Date: 09 Oct 2018

Bright Horizons Harwell Day Nursery and Preschool in Didcot has been rated ‘Good’ after its most recent Ofsted inspection.

The nursery received its inspection on September 13th 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 observing activities and staff interactions with children both indoors and outdoors. Comments from the report included:

  • Children are inspired by the stimulating and well-presented learning environment. Staff make good use of interesting resources and provide children with many new and practical experiences. Children enjoy their time at the nursery and behave well.
  • Leadership is strong. The new manager has implemented rigorous procedures to make continuous improvements to the quality of provision. She and other managers have high expectations of staff and an ambitious vision for the future of the nursery.
  • Staff build effective partnerships with parents and other early years professionals. They successfully work together to meet children’s needs. Parents are very pleased with the improvements made since the last inspection and their children’s progress.

“We are pleased that the partnership between parents and staff has been recognised in this positive Ofsted report,” said Nursery Manager Nicky Davis. “We will always strive for further improvements as we move forward.”
