Monkey Puzzle Hartley Wintney recently had their latest Ofsted inspection which has now been published, and the result?
Drum roll please…
They have been rated GOOD!
In fact there were only two areas that held them back from achieving an outstanding rating. The owner, manager and team have already begun focusing on on these points to further improve their standing as a leading provider of childcare provision in Hartley Wintney and the surrounding area.
The day nursery conveniently located on the east side of Hartley Wintney just off the A30 is owned and operated by Cherry Newnham and provides high quality nursery facilities for children aged from 3 months through to five years old.
The Ofsted report highlighted key factors in reaching their decision including:
- The management team provides a broad range of interesting activities that challenges children well. All children make good progress from their starting points.
- Staff help children to develop effective language skills. For instance, they repeat words for younger children and use skilful questions to support older children to think.
- Staff contribute well to children’s good health. For example, they provide healthy meals that children enjoy and plan daily opportunities for exercise and fresh air.
- Staff build strong partnerships with parents and other providers to exchange information and promote consistency in children’s learning.
- The management team has made significant improvements since the last inspection. For example, it has introduced effective induction and supervision processes that support staff in their roles well.
- The management team reflects on the quality of the provision well and involves staff, parents and children to make changes that provide positive outcomes for children.
We are particularly pleased by the final point highlighting the ability and confidence of Cherry, the management team and staff.
As ever it takes a lot of hard work and commitment, so for Ofsted to acknowledge that is very pleasing.
So all of us here at Monkey Puzzle Head Office want to offer huge congratulations to Cherry and her hard working team, we are all very proud of you.
