Outstanding Ofsted report for Brighton nursery

Cherry Tree Nursery has been awarded the highest possible marks in their recent Ofsted inspection after proving there is “excellent support and care for all children”.

The inspectors, who visited April 2016, found that the buddy system the nursery has in place means that every child always has a special and familiar adult that they can go to.

The report states “Children show high levels of security, safety and well-being.”

Inspectors recognised that the staff are “extremely skilled in teaching and extending children’s learning” and by creating exciting play spaces and an innovative range of challenging activities, they help the children improve their writing and social skills and encourage their learning.

The inspectors also found that there is high priority to the early identification of disabled children and those who have special educational needs. The staff work alongside parents and professionals to get support for the children to help them achieve.

Councillor Tom Bewick, Chair of the Children, Young People & Skills Committee, said: “It’s great that the nursery has had such a glowing report and the hard work of the staff has really paid off.

“The employees are enthusiastic and work so well with the children and their parents.”
