We are excited to share that Busy Bees Mansfield Vicar Water is celebrating after receiving an ‘Outstanding’ rating, following an Ofsted inspection on 25 July 2022.
This is the nursery’s second ‘Outstanding’ result. The Ofsted inspector commented that the “children demonstrate that they feel extremely safe and secure in the staff’s warm and nurturing care”. The nursery gained an ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, where it was also commented that children “make exceptional progress and start school with an abundance of knowledge and skills”. 

Ofsted praised the nursery’s partnership with parents, where it was commented that they “feel immensely involved in their child’s learning journey” and “highly praise the regular feedback they receive through the online parent app”. 

The staff at the nursery were recognised for providing “amazing opportunities for all children to participate in the rich, varied and imaginative learning experiences throughout the nursery” where they use “inventive ways to ignite children's thirst for learning and maximise spontaneous learning opportunities”. 

Child inclusivity was also given a special mention as Ofsted highlighted that “children with special educational needs and/or disabilities thrive at nursery”. It was also mentioned that “children have a wonderful connection to their key person, and staff know the individual children exceptionally well”.  

Fiona Marriott, Centre Director at Busy Bees Mansfield Vicar Water, said: “We are over the moon to have received ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted. It is incredibly rewarding to receive this acknowledgement which recognises the quality of the care and education that we provide here.

“The team works tirelessly to ensure that every area of care and education is to the highest standard and I am so proud of them. They are hugely committed and dedicated to providing a wonderful and nurturing learning environment so that our children have the best start in life.”
