Ofsted

Our most recent Ofsted inspection took place on 13th May 2015, and the inspector found that Mother Goose Pre-School was ‘Good’ in all areas and summarised:

Teaching: 

The quality of teaching is good because all staff have a strong knowledge and understanding of the areas of learning. The staff join in children's play and generally challenge them as they learn.

Opportunities

All children love to learn outdoors. The staff ensure that children experience all seven areas of learning in the garden. Furthermore, they give children the option to eat their lunch indoors or outdoors and staff are effectively deployed to support their choices.

Development

Observations and assessments are carried out regularly and, staff have an accurate understanding of what children can do and how to plan for the next steps in their learning. 

Parents

Effective partnerships with parents ensure they are well informed about, and supported with, their children's learning and well-being. Parents comment on how well their children are prepared for the move to school.

Staff

The pre-school staff continue to develop their knowledge and understanding through undertaking appropriate early years qualifications and attending regular training. This demonstrates the staffs' commitment to continually improve their practice and strengthen the progress children make.

Environment

The pre-school provides a relaxed, fun and welcoming environment where each child is respected. The pre-school leader and staff are vigilant about children's safety. They implement robust procedures to protect children and provide a secure environment.
