Staff and children are jumping for joy after receiving ‘Outstanding’, following an Ofsted inspection. 

Busy Bees Mardley Hill was inspected by Ofsted on 22 February 2022. This is now the nursery’s third ‘Outstanding’ result since its first inspection in 2009. 

The Ofsted inspector commented that the children “consistently show happiness and engagement through their play and experiences” and they are “focused and engaged in the activities they choose”. The nursery gained an ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, where it was also commented that children “demonstrate excellent independence skills and confidence”. 

Ofsted praised the nursery’s partnership with parents, ensuring “parents receive regular and precise communication from staff” and parents “know how they can specifically enhance their child’s learning at home”. 

The staff at the nursery were also recognised for “providing high-quality teaching and learning experiences for all children” and “opportunities for children to learn new words”, with staff nurturing the skills children need to ensure they are ready for the next stage in their learning. 

Child development was also given a special mention as Ofsted highlighted that “staff expertly and consistently extend children’s learning, including those children with special educational needs and/or disabilities”. 

Laura Jacques, Centre Director at Busy Bees Mardley Hill, said: “We are over the moon to have received ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted. Having been a part of the Busy Bees family for over 20 years, it was always a dream of mine to achieve triple outstanding, and we have finally done it! Our ‘Outstanding’ result is a testament to our long-standing team who are so passionate and dedicated to providing our children with the best start in life. I am so proud of the whole team who work tirelessly to ensure that they provide the highest level of care and education to our children and families.”
