A Bramley nursery has been praised for its ‘a warm, nurturing environment’ in its latest Ofsted report.
Inspectors classed Copper Beech Nursery as providing a ‘good’ overall standard of education, with praise for children’s behaviour, the positive environment and staff being positive role models.
They said the nursery, run by the Salvation Army and based in Copper Beech Avenue, had an ‘interesting and exciting’ curriculum and said:
“Staff provide opportunities for children to broaden their experiences and build secure foundations for their future learning. For example, staff focus on helping children to become independent in their self-care from an early age.
“Babies enjoy using glitter and glue to develop their hand-to-eye coordination, in preparation for feeding themselves. Toddlers begin to use the toilet and staff show them how to wash their hands thoroughly. Older children are encouraged to put on their own hats and coats to play outdoors.”
The report noted to further improve the quality of the early years provision, the provider should make sure that staff sharply focus their teaching to help children to make the best possible progress. They should also enhance staff’s understanding of how to support young children’s behaviour, so that their expectations are not too high.
