A TILBURY nursery has been highly praised by Ofsted.
The government inspectors visited Helping Hands Nursery on St Chads Road, Tilbury in St Chads Road in Janaury 2018.
The report states:
The manager and staff team create a welcoming and nurturing environment for all children and families. Children come into the nursery and quickly become involved in an activity with their friends. Staff support children’s emotional well-being effectively.
Partnership with parents is a real strength. Parents speak very highly of the staff and say they are kind, caring and approachable. Parents express that they are kept well- informed about their children’s development and this supports them to continue the learning at home. They are delighted with the progress their children make and feel older children are well prepared for school.
Staff have respectful relationships with children and babies. For example, staff greet children by their name, and children then greet and say goodbye to one another naturally in this way too. Staff act as interested and enthusiastic learning partners through play. Staff and children enjoy the purposeful time they spend together.
The manager has high aspirations for all children in the nursery’s care. The nursery works effectively with other agencies to secure appropriate support for children and families.
