Children and staff at Busy Bees Kettering Venture Park are celebrating after receiving an ‘Outstanding’ rating, following an Ofsted inspection on 28 September 2022. 
This is the nursery’s second ‘Outstanding’ result. The Ofsted inspector commented that the children “receive high-quality care and education through exceptionally well-planned play experiences” and “develop excellent social skills and play together harmoniously”. 

The nursery gained an ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, where it was also commented that children “build exceptional bonds with staff and flourish in their care”.
The staff at the nursery were praised for helping the children to “become independent thinkers” with staff recognised for being “warm and responsive towards the children’s needs and help them to feel safe and secure in their environment”. 

The team was also recognised for “carefully designing an inspiring curriculum which progressively builds on children’s knowledge and skills”.  

The “incredibly effective” partnership with parents was also given a special mention, with Ofsted commenting that “parents are deeply involved in the development of the nursery and contribute their time and skills”. 

The nursery was also recognised for its inclusivity and “children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who speak English as an additional language make incredible progress”. 

Manisha Patel, Centre Director at Busy Bees Kettering Venture Park, said: “We are over the moon to receive an ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted. Our team strives to deliver exceptional nursery care to all our children and our latest Ofsted result is a testament to the passion and commitment of our staff. We’re looking forward to building on our parent partnerships to ensure children flourish during their time at Busy Bees.”
