Ofsted results for this private nursery Good
“Children are actively encouraged to develop their independence and sense of responsibility. They independently access resources and are provided with a good range of varied activities in different rooms across the nursery. Younger children learn how to put on their aprons for art activities and older children successfully serve their own food at mealtimes.”
“I have been overwhelmed by the support and caring nature of all the staff. They are clearly well trained and as a first time parent, they’ve helped give me great advice and together we’ve been consistent with developing skills and routines. My son has developed into a clever, caring child, coming home with new skills and understanding about sharing with others. His sleeping and eating has improved drastically since nursery and I appreciate their regular observations. I’d highly recommend to everyone!”
“Our little boy has been at CK since he was just over a year old. He had never really been looked after by anyone other than myself or my husband so we were a little nervous. The settling in sessions were fantastic and he even had his nap as normal on his first day!!! The team made me feel at ease about him starting nursery. He loves going to nursery and has real friendships there which is reassuring from our point of view, he is safe, happy and always has a massive smile on his face at drop off and pick up. His days are filled with art and craft, story time, indoor and outdoor play. His key person gives him attention and praise plus provide us with lots of updates through observations on his development on eyLog. The staff are amazing. They are professional, genuinely caring, energetic and enthusiastic. The nursery manager who has been there for years, holds a wealth of knowledge and is a credit to the organisation.”
“My son has been at CK since 8 months old and has now started school a confident, well adjusted, clever little boy with a solid understanding of phonics/numbers etc. The work of this nursery and its amazing staff is wonderful. No wonder it has an outstanding Ofsted rating.”
“The staff at Caring Kindergartens are polite, helpful, friendly and professional. All 3 of our children have attended this nursery. We wouldn’t feel comfortable taking our children anywhere else. They all love nursery, all the staff know the children’s names and the children feel happy and safe. As a parent, I feel my children are happy and safe, having fun whilst learning.”
“Caring Kindergartens is by far the best nursery/pre-school in the area. My eldest son attended around 15 years ago and my youngest child has been there for nearly 3 years. I cannot praise this setting enough. The staff are friendly, helpful, approachable and the nursery manager is absolutely fantastic, she is always on hand to provide any support and advice. My son thoroughly enjoys his setting and the structure to his day (in fact sometimes he asks to go at the weekend!). My son has come on in leaps and bounds since being in his placement and he is a happy, carefree, independent child, I think a lot of this is due to Caring Kindergartens. Both the nursery and pre-school are fantastic. The pre-school has many activities that he loves; he recently went for a walk in the woods and always chats about what he and his friends did. They have an author coming into the pre-school shortly and my son is very excited about this, there is also the opportunity to purchase a signed book! The newsletter is fantastic as it tells you what activities are coming up and what can be done at home. The staff have fully supported my son and me with his toilet issues and are always on hand to provide any other advice on any issues that arise at home. My son loves the home cooked meals and it`s great when they put out little snacks for the parents to try!! The nursery/pre-school have weekend activities sometimes, craft open day, Christmas fayre, which is a great way to meet the other parents and for the children to have a special get together. At Christmas, my son was in the nativity and the way it was run was fantastic and all the children and parents were very pleased with their performance. I am definitely going to be very sad when my son leaves in September. Taking and picking my son up from the pre-school/nursery is always a pleasurable experience and I am going to miss the staff very much, I`m sure my son will miss them more!! A massive thank you and praise should go to this setting. I would highly recommend this nursery/pre-school.”
