AN East Tilbury day nursery has received an outstanding report by education watchdog Ofsted.
Little Angels Day Nursery was inspected in June 2017.
The report states:
The inspirational manager has very high expectations of herself and the staff. She leads her staff team exceptionally well to deliver the highest standards of practice, so that all children make the best possible progress.
The caring, family atmosphere of the nursery enables children to feel extremely secure and happy. Children develop exceptionally strong attachments with their key person. They settle very well, and are highly motivated to play and learn. Parents are very complimentary about the care and education their children receive.
Partnerships with parents and other professionals are outstanding. Senior staff use these to ensure that all children, and especially those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, have their needs quickly identified and extremely well met.
The cultural diversity of the children is respected and valued. Staff support children who speak English as an additional language very well.
They make use of visual signs, books, posters and parent contributions to help all children to respect other languages and cultures.
The provider and management team are extremely ambitious and reflective, and continually identify areas that can be further enhanced. They have developed innovative ways to gather the views of staff, parents and children.
