Date: 13 Dec 2019
Bright Horizons Twickenham Meadway Day Nursery and Preschool in Twickenham has been rated ‘Good’ after its recent Ofsted inspection.
The nursery received its inspection on November 14th and was rated as ‘Good’ in all 3 areas of inspection: The quality of education; Personal development; Leadership and management. It was also rated ‘Outstanding’ for Behaviour and attitudes.
Inspection activities included the inspector sampling a range of documentation, including evidence of staff suitability and children’s records. Comments from the report included:
- The manager is an experienced professional who leads her team well. She offers her staff effective support and guidance. Staff express a sense of pride in working at Bright Horizons Twickenham.
- Language development features strongly in the educational programmes. Staff engage children in conversations and talk to them confidently. They encourage singing and read exciting stories to children. Children listen intently, showing high levels of motivation and enthusiasm for repeating familiar refrains.
- Staff provide good support for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. They incorporate strategies, such as the use of visual aids, to build on children’s learning. However, at times, teaching presents insufficient challenge for the most able children.
“We are delighted to read the positive comments, particularly about the emphasis on language development,” said Nursery Manager Pippa Shaw. “We will continue to deliver exceptional care and education to our families, who we pride ourselves on working very closely with.”
