BUSY Bees Day Nursery in Chafford Hundred has been rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted.
The government watchdog visited the Drake Road nursery on June 1st, 2018.
The report states:
The dedicated and knowledgeable leadership team is extremely passionate about providing children with the very best care and learning opportunities. Leaders use a range of systems to obtain the views of parents. Their feedback is used very effectively to further develop the service provided for the children and their families.
The quality of teaching is highly effective. The well-qualified and experienced staff know the children very well. They skilfully plan high-quality learning experiences and instinctively extend and challenge children’s learning at every opportunity.
Children’s mathematical development is promoted exceptionally well. Staff routinely count with younger children and introduce them to simple sums. Pre-school children recognise, count and understand the sequence of numbers.
Children’s behaviour is exemplary. They are highly motivated and display exceptional levels of independence. Staff act as excellent role models and children thrive on the consistent praise and encouragement from the caring and attentive staff.
Partnerships with parents are extremely strong. Innovative strategies are effectively implemented to engage parents in their child’s continued learning both at home and in the nursery.
