It is with an immense sense of pride and delight that we can now share some fantastic news with you all. On Thursday 5th of August our Little Owls Scarning nursery had their first OFSTED inspection. Ofsted grades us on five areas including:

· Overall Effectiveness
· The Quality of Education
· Personal Development
· Leadership & Management
· Behaviour & Attitudes

Our nursery was graded ‘OUTSTANDING’ in every single area!!

This is such a huge achievement for us as a nursery and even more poignant that this was our very first inspection since we opened our Scarning nursery in 2017. We are exceptionally proud that both  our Little Owls Toftwood and now Little Owls Scarning (as well as our hoots after school clubs ) have ALL now been awarded the highest possible grade from Ofsted.  Our families know how hard our staff work in their endeavour to give your children the very best care and education each and every day. So, it is wonderful to have our hard work and commitment to our children and families officially recognised by Ofsted.

Some of the quotes we would like to highlight are:

“Children are the heart of this exceptional nursery”
“Children’s behaviour is explementary”
“Children make rapid sustained progress in their development”
“Toddlers and babies have wonderful, nurturing relationships with their key persons, Toddlers beam as they run to familiar adults with open arms for a cuddle”
“Babies are gently soothed to sleep in their sleeping pods”
“Managers are highly supportive of their staff”
“Children make excellent progress in all areas of learning”

To read these quotes from Ofsted makes us feel so very, very, proud of the “exceptional nursery” that we have all created. Our staff are the backbone of our nursery and we thank them all from the bottom of our hearts.  We are literally bursting with pride
