Children at Willow House Nursery and Holiday Club are happy and confident, but their progress needs to be better monitored.
That’s the view of Ofsted inspector Jane Tucker following her Early Years Register visit to the Colne Road, Huddersfield, premises last month.
Despite a number of good points outlined in the report, she has graded Willow House as 3-Satisfactory.
The report states: “Children and babies are happy, confident and well-cared for because they have formed positive relationships with staff.
“All children access a well-resourced play and learning environment, both inside and outdoors .
“Staff demonstrate a sound knowledge and understanding of their roles and responsibilities for child protection.”
However, the inspector added: “Monitoring of children’s assessment is not consistently rigorous. This results in learning experiences that are not fully matched to children’s individual interests, needs and stage of development.”
She also stated that staff under-performance needed to be addressed .
The nursery and holiday club is run by Broadoak Children’s Nursery Association, a registered charity.
