Nurseries cannot receive an outstanding rating during their first Ofsted inspection, which means that the good rating is the best possible outcome for Tops Corfe Mullen. The high standard of care has not gone un-noticed by many parents with children attending the nursery.
Cheryl Hadland, Managing Director of Tops Day Nurseries commented: “We were delighted by such a positive Ofsted report for Tops Corfe Mullen. Our staff work extremely hard to support child development and several parents have commented on how pleased they are with their child's achievements, so it’s great news that this has been reflected in our recent inspection.”
This huge achievement comes at a time when more and more nurseries and child minders are underperforming, following changes to the way providers of early years care are inspected in England, according to Ofsted official figures*.
The Ofsted report noted that staff have a good understanding of children’s individual needs whilst supporting emotional development, parents are well informed about their child’s achievements, staff make good use of observational assessment to monitor children’s progress and the manager has a clear drive for supporting the staff’s ongoing development.
