Teddies Nursery has achieved a ‘Good’ rating for wellbeing, learning, care and development, teaching and assessment, the nursery environment and leadership and management following a recent inspection by Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) and Estyn.

The inspection report says:

‘Children have clear bonds of affection with the practitioners who care for them. They are settled and happy.’

‘Children develop effective literacy and numeracy skills and make good progress from their start points, which are generally at or above the level expected for their age.’

‘Practitioners’ expectations of good behaviour are high and, as a result, children’s behaviour is very good.’

‘Practitioners provide a broad range of learning experiences that reflect the philosophy of the foundation phase successfully. They plan interesting daily experiences, which target children’s interests positively, and create regular and beneficial opportunities to promote independent learning.’

‘Practitioners plan well to develop children’s literacy and numeracy skills effectively.’

‘The manager and room leaders ensure that the premises are well maintained and children are cared for in a clean and safe environment.’

Jessica Tate, Nursery Manager at Teddies, said: “I am delighted with the report and would like thank our amazing team for always working incredibly hard to ensure children receive high quality learning experiences and all the support they need. We will continue to keep up our high standards and to build on this success.”
