Ofsted praise for ‘good’ Bramley nursery


A Bramley nursery has been praised for its ‘warm and nurturing environment’ in its latest Ofsted report.

Ranked Inspectors Copper beech tree nursery as providing an overall ‘good’ level of education, with praise for the behavior of the children, the supportive environment and the staff being positive role models.

They said the crèche, run by the Salvation Army and based on Copper Beech Avenue, had an “interesting and exciting” program and said:

“Staff provide opportunities for children to broaden their experiences and lay a solid foundation for future learning. For example, staff focus on helping children become independent in their personal care from an early age.

“Babies like to use glitter and glue to develop their hand-eye coordination, in preparation for feeding. Toddlers start using the toilet and staff show them how to wash their hands properly. Older children are encouraged to don their own hats and coats for outdoor play.

The report noted that to further improve the quality of early childhood provision, the provider should ensure that staff strongly focus their teaching on helping children make the best possible progress. They should also improve staff understanding of how to support the behavior of young children, so that their expectations are not set too high.
