Kevin Pearce Nursery classed Outstanding by OFSTED!

Following the recent visit by OFSTED the Nursery Setting at Kevin Pearce Children’s centre was pronounced Outstanding, which is the highest rating an education establishment can receive.

The inspector reviewed the running of the nursery and spoke to both staff and parents. Among many things, the inspector commended the fantastic opportunities for outdoor experiences, the support for development across all the children, including those with additional needs, the positive relationships  of staff with parents, as well as the observed good work relationship within the team!

Some of the feedback received says:

“Staff provide exceptional experiences for children to connect with the natural
world. There is outstanding support In developing children’s speech and language skills. There is an exceptionally high team spirit in nursery. Staff report a high level of wellbeing.”

“Children are inspired and thrive at this nursery. Staff provide a warm, caring environment for children, and show genuine care for their wellbeing. Children are very happy and show that they feel safe and emotionally secure.”

We would like to join in congratulating the amazing staff working at Kevin Pearce Nursery for earning this achievement. Not that we needed it to know they’re awesome!

A brief overview of the inspection

On Monday 5th September, Kevin Pearce got their Ofsted notification call.
The team stayed behind after work to finalise the preparations for the 8am Ofsted inspector.

A joint observation was carried out by the centre’s manager with the inspector, then theinspector drifted between both nursery rooms and the outdoor areas speaking to all staff. Numerous external professionals spoke to the inspector about their experiences of Kevin Pearce.

The DCCM, SEYP and CEO then completed the leadership and management section, followed shortly by the inspection feedback, which one of the quiso’s joined us for.

Message from Sure Start Children’s Centres on Halloween Safety

As we are excited and getting ready for Halloween, Sure Start Children’s Centres would like to remind everyone from the young to the young at heart to be mindful and remain safe during this spooktacular time.

Do:

  • Only trick or treat in your own neighbourhood unless you are with an adult
  • Stay in well lit areas where there are plenty of houses
  • Make sure an adult knows the area you plan to visit and what time you’ll be back
  • Look out for ‘no callers please’ posters and respect your neighbours
  • Keep to pavements and trick or treat on one side of the street before crossing safely to the other side – don’t criss-cross
  • Wait to eat any treats until you get home so that an adult can check them

Don’t:

  • Don’t cut through back alleys, ginnels or fields, and don’t trick or treat too far from home
  • Don’t go alone – take an adult with you or stay in a group

Have you thought about a career in Early Years?

Every day is different, and you will be in the privileged position of helping young children develop and learn through play and care.

        

 

Key skills must include…

🥰 A warm smiley face that makes children feel safe and secure.

 

🎤 The ability to sing (in tune is not a necessity) but in front of a crowd is essential!

📖 You must be patient and kind with the ability to accept a couple of interruptions during story time.

🦖 The preferred candidate must have a good sense of humour and a good imagination, if a child requests that you are a dinosaur, you will be the best roar-some dinosaur you can be!

🦸‍♀️ Knowledge of aliens, superheroes and children’s characters would be advantageous.

👀 You must feel comfortable telling everybody in the same room as you that you are going to the bathroom. You must also be prepared to leave the building feeling comfortable with unknown substances on your clothing.

😘 And finally you must be prepared to distribute hugs when needed, ensuring children feel special and loved.
