Posted on 31st Oct 2018 by Harton Village Kindergarten


On October 24th 2018 we received the result of our first Ofsted inspection and we are delighted to be able to say that Harton Village Kindergarten is outstanding! We are extremely grateful for all of the hard work and support from everyone involved with the nursery who helped us achieve this amazing result. We are thankful to all of our staff team, parents, family and friends who have made this all possible and we now look forward to the future where we now have the opportunity to reach further, to always improve the quality of the childcare we offer and to the many more outstanding results we hope to achieve.

We have picked out a few of the comments in the report that we feel really stand out to ourselves and show the level of the care we provide:

The quality of teaching is outstanding. Exceptionally knowledgeable staff inspire children with an inspirational range of learning opportunities.

Children develop an incredibly strong bond with their key person and other members of staff.

Children make excellent progress in communication and language. Staff adapt their language effectively when talking to children. Staff take swift action when they identify children who require further support. This helps to close any gaps in learning rapidly.

Staff are highly skilled at identifying what children need to learn. They expertly plan activities which are linked to children's interests.

Children make consistently high rates of progress. They are extremely well prepared for the next stage in their learning.

The report is live on the ofsted website, you can find a copy here, and we encourage all of our parents to take some time to red through the comments from the inspector and read for themselves about the level of care we provide at Harton Village Kindergarten.
