A Bainsford nursery has been praised by inspectors for its “nurturing, supportive ethos”.
Carousel Child Care also earned credit during the Education Scotland review due to the “positive, caring relationships” fostered between staff, children and parents, as well as the responsive service its manager and practitioners provide for toddlers and their mums, dads and carers.
Another key strength highlighted by the report was the confidence of children and their ability to develop friendships and engage with staff.
Inspectors identified and discussed specific areas for improvement going forward.
These were: continuing to develop processes for observation, planning and monitoring of children’s learning; supporting practitioners to develop their knowledge and understanding of how young children learn; and building on the positive start made to developing the indoor and outdoor environment to increase the opportunities for children to develop creativity and learn through inquiry and investigation.
