A CORRINGHAM pre-school has been praised by Ofsted in a recent inspection.
Kids Kollege was registered in 2014. The pre-school employs seven members of childcare staff. Of these, two hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 3 and two at level 2.
The pre-school opens from Tuesday to Friday term time only. Sessions are from 9am until 3.30pm on a Tuesday and Friday, and 9.15am to 12.15pm on a Wednesday and Thursday. The pre-school provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. It supports a number of children who have special educational needs or disability.
The pre-school was praised for the following
Children are settled, secure and motivated to learn. Staff skilfully follow children’s interests to provide them with an exciting range of adult-led and freely chosen learning opportunities.
Children’s communication and language development is good. Staff encourage all children, including those who have special educational needs or disability to express themselves fully through activities that promote their speech and language skills.
Staff promote children’s personal, social and emotional development effectively. Children rapidly gain valuable skills that support them to be independent and capable of managing their own care needs.
Partnerships with parents are well established. Staff share information with parents about the activities and routines that their children take part in. The effective two-way communication systems and sharing of information, help staff meet children’s individual needs well.
Managers review the quality of the provision effectively and closely monitor children’s progress. They welcome feedback from staff, parents and children to identify areas for development, and to work on continuously improving their service.
