Solihull Kindergarten proud to be presented with the Good Ofsted rating

A SOLIHULL kindergarten leader is proud after its Ofsted rating jumped from Demanding Improvement to Good.

After a visit from Inspectors Bright Horizons Nursery on Kineton Road has been rated Good in all areas.

The nursery, which has 40 registered children, was praised for its program of activities and experiences for all children.

Inspectors noted: “There is a good balance between child-initiated and adult-led experiences, based on each child’s past

learn and expand their knowledge and understanding effectively.

“Staff read stories and introduce books that effectively link to topics that children learn about.”

During the inspection, which took place on October 7, it was noticed that the staff get to know the children well and they have close contact with the parents to gather information so that the routines can be adapted to them at home.

When kindergarten and kindergarten were previously inspected in 2019, the management of the institution was assessed as requiring improvement, as the then existing management system did not allow weaknesses to be easily detected.

Now inspectors say: “There have been significant improvements since the last inspection, which has had a positive effect on the provision.

The new leader is inspiring and leads his team with a clear and considerate ethos to provide high quality care

and education.

“Staff are motivated and empowered to take on new roles and responsibilities.”

The reporter said the current security measures in place are effective.

Inspectors noted that Bright Horizons needs to strengthen the relationship with parents to promote a two-way information flow and fully engage parents and / or caregivers in the offer. Chelsea Jones, kindergarten manager, said: “The team has worked incredibly hard over the last few years. 12 months to improve the quality and standards of the nursery and that is really reflected in the children’s learning experiences.

The Ofsted inspection report represents a true picture of what it is like to be a child in our nursery.

“I’m proud to have led the team on this journey and am excited about what the future will bring for Bright Horizons Solihull.”
