Following our most recent unannounced inspection by the Care Inspectorate, Newton Primary School Nursery was rated ‘Very Good’ across all areas.
Inspectors looked broadly at the four themes of Care and Support, Quality of Environment, Quality of staffing and Quality of Leadership and Management and provided positive feedback to staff at the Dunblane-based nursery.
Children were described as “very happy and confident in the care of staff” and “parents were complimentary about the skills and experience of staff, agreeing that their children has access to a range of activities that supported their development.”
The inspector also found that a key strength of the nursery was the staff team, who were highly motivated and committed to delivering a quality service for local families.
The environment was also identified as well organised for parents and children, and the children played well together, accessed toys and games they wanted to play with and organised their own activities, sharing ideas for developing their learning.
Jane McManus, Head of Newton Primary School Nursery, said: “We are delighted that the effective work of our highly motivated and committed staff team, working in partnership with our parents and children, create such a welcoming, calm, nurturing and positive learning environment.”
