A POOLE nursery is celebrating after inspectors praised their ‘happy and confident’ children.
Tops Poole, on Denmark Lane, received a ‘good’ rating after a visit from Ofsted inspectors.
The nursery and preschool said it uses its location to provide a ‘wide variety of activities and experiences for the children to enjoy’.
The Ofsted report said: “Children are happy and confident in this warm and friendly setting. They settle quickly when they arrive and are keen to explore the motivating and stimulating activities staff provide for them.
“Children form good relationships with staff. They approach staff for comfort and reassurance or to engage staff in their play. This helps children feel safe and secure.”
It added: “The setting is well resourced, both indoors and outdoors. Children have independent access to resources that enhance their physical development.”
Natasha Holgate, senior nursery manager at Tops Poole, said: “We are so proud of our amazing ‘good’ Ofsted outcome.
“My staff and I have worked so hard to ensure we achieved a ‘good’ through training and continuous professional development, so children have great outcomes on their learning.
“The very positive report is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff and the engagement of the children and their families and carers.”
Tops Poole are part of a sustainable day nursery chain, Tops Day Nurseries, which has more than 30 nurseries across the south and south west.
