OFSTED inspectors have been singing the praises of the Nightingale Private Day Nursery.
The government inspectors have just upgraded the Oakes nursery in New Hey Road from Satisfactory (3) to Good (2) in their latest report.
They said: “Staff have good knowledge and understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage... This ensures all children make good progress in all areas of their learning and development.
“Through well-planned, purposeful activities and the positive engagement of staff in children’s play, children’s communication skills, vocabulary and language are developing well.
“The provision is resourced with a wide range of age-appropriate toys, games and activities.”
The nursery now needs to improve staff performance monitoring and use of information from parents.
The nursery, set up in 2011, employs 11 staff and has 90 children on its roll.
