The College Nursery Celebrates ‘Good’ Ofsted Result For Overall Effectiveness

1 January 2023

Staff at the College Nursery, based on the Peterborough College grounds at Park Crescent, were rewarded this month with the news that they had been rated ‘Good’ at their latest Ofsted inspection in January 2023.

Established in 1992, the Nursery welcomed the assessment of ‘good’ in all four areas of inspection. Ofsted inspectors said “Children thrive at this friendly and welcoming setting. Staff provide children with sensitive and responsive interactions. This means children feel safe in their environment and benefit from meaningful interactions from staff.”

Ofsted was full of praise for the Nursery, adding that “some aspects of teaching are outstanding” and “staff have an excellent knowledge of child development and therefore plan sequenced and meaningful learning opportunities.” They were also impressed by the behaviour of the children, saying that “behaviour at the setting is good. Staff provide children with clear boundaries and they are reminded of these before activities begin. Therefore, children know and understand what is expected of them. They respond well to adults and follow instructions. Each room provides staff and children with prompts about expected behaviour. For example, they remind children to share with their peers. Children respond to boundaries set and develop a sense of right and wrong.”

Nursery manager, Brogan Rainey, was ecstatic with the result. “My team and I are pleased with our Ofsted report, we feel it recognises and celebrates the hard work, dedication and passion that our practitioners put into their roles daily.”

The College Nursery has been offering high-quality childcare in Peterborough for babies and young children, aged 3 months to 5 years old, for over 30 years. The Nursery aims to provide a happy, caring atmosphere within a stimulating, safe and secure environment.
