A CHILDREN’S day nursery in the grounds of St Clere’s school in Stanford-le-Hope has received a damning report from Ofsted.
Ofsted inspected Blooming Babies Day Nursery in Butts Lane, Stanford-le-Hope on January 5th, 2016.
The report makes the following criticisms:
The provider demonstrates a very poor capacity to improve and issues raised at previous inspections have not been adequately addressed.
Systems to monitor staff through supervision are not focused enough on raising the quality and consistency of teaching to a good level.
The managers do not monitor the educational programme or children’s progress sharply enough. They do not ensure that accurate and appropriate information is used to support children’s ongoing learning and development. Gaps in children’s learning are not always identified or addressed in a timely manner.
Staff are not diligent in promoting children’s health and safety. Toilet areas are dirty and staff do not consider the risk when changing children’s nappies on the mat placed directly on the toilet floor.
The managers do not monitor or evaluate the provision to identify areas of improvement through rigorous self-evaluation.
Opportunities for parents to share more extensively in their child’s learning have not been fully explored.
