The nursery received its inspection on September 29th, with all categories passing with the ‘Outstanding’ status. Ofsted report on four key categories; quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership management. The inspection was carried out through a variety of tasks including staff and parent interviews and observational activities. Comments from the report included:

  • “Passionate leaders set an aspirational curriculum with a strong focus on children's overall well-being. They create a rich variety of activities which support children to feel relaxed and able to access resources with confidence.”
  • “They immerse children in a language-rich environment, narrating the things they do throughout the day and modelling their thinking. This means that children are constantly exposed to new language and vocabulary.”
  • “All children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are immersed in learning throughout the day and make rapid progress.”
  • “Staff ensure that children's voices are heard and that they feel fully involved in every aspect of nursery life.”

Cheriese Nursery Manager at the VIP Westminster setting said: “We are extremely delighted to be rated Outstanding for the fourth time in a row! My team have all worked so hard to provide an enriching and aspirational curriculum that ensures we have a strong focus on the children’s wellbeing. I am thrilled we have been recognised by Ofsted for our enthusiasm in supporting each child to progress and thrive to reach their full potential. I’m thrilled to be part of and lead a team of passionate and dedicated practitioners.”
