Epsom Nursery is Outstanding and flourishing

Bright Horizons Epsom Waltham House Day Nursery and Preschool, which is based in Surrey, has once again been awarded an Outstanding rating by Ofsted. This latest achievement is a result of an inspection by Ofsted on April 13.

The nursery was previously awarded an Outstanding classification by Ofsted back in August 2017. Ofsted reports on four main areas; quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership management. The nursery once again passed all these categories with an Outstanding grade with its nurturing learning environment and the excellent communication between staff and parents among the key highlights of the report.

The nursery earned top praise for the following:

  • “Teaching is highly effective. Staff provide an abundance of opportunities for children to master skills and be confident learners.”
  • “Children are extremely happy and flourishing.”
  • “Parents speak highly of the staff and the care they provide. They are extremely happy with the progress their children are making and say communication with staff is excellent.”

Nursery manager, Eve, said “We are very proud that the quality of our nursery was demonstrated to Ofsted. Here at Epsom Waltham House our vision is to deliver an enriching curriculum that meets the needs of every child in the nursery. We foster communication, language development, and emotional wellbeing. We have created a home-away-from-home environment, and the team work incredibly hard to ensure learning is delivered around specific interests.”

The bespoke Bright Beginnings curriculum in use at Epsom Waltham House ensures children learn through fun and play activities, helping them to discover their individual interests and passions. The curriculum, which is in place across all Bright Horizons nurseries in England, helps children to prepare for the future, right from the very start. It is designed to acknowledge the individual voice and needs of each child to promote confidence, wellbeing, and a genuine love for learning.
