Ofsted inspectors have praised Giggles Nursery in Town Street, Bramley, as being ‘good’ in its first inspection.
There was praise for a ‘strong’ leadership team, effective safeguarding arrangements, daily outdoor activities and exercise and learning about healthy lifestyles.
Inspectors’ report said: “Children are happy to arrive at the nursery, where they are warmly welcomed by staff. The key-person system has been developed, and children form close bonds with staff. This supports their emotional well-being.
“Children are supported to learn behavioural expectations, such as turn taking and sharing, for example, as they play a game of dominoes. However, staff are not always consistent in reinforcing behaviour expectations to children.
“Staff support children who speak English as an additional language by using key words and phrases in their home language. This supports children’s communication and helps them to feel included.
“Practitioners support children to learn English words by using children’s home languages with the English word and visual aids, such as pictures or objects.”
Inspectors said the nursery should support staff to embed expectations for children’s behaviour consistently, to ensure that children fully understand safe and socially acceptable ways to behave.
