The ‘vibrant’ Busy Bees Leamington Spa nursery has secured its second Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating.

The centre, at Warwick Gates Business Park, was visited on 1 June, with the inspector noting that the ‘inspiring environment’ allows children to ‘become confident and independent learners’.

Specific praise was directed at the centre’s ‘exemplary’ partnership working, with staff co-ordinating closely with parents, external agencies and other settings ‘to ensure that children receive consistent support and the highest quality of education at all times’.

Parents commented to inspectors on the ‘high-quality care and learning opportunities’ and ‘how confident their children have become since attending this nursery’.

Centre Director Sarah Taylor said: “We are thrilled to maintain our Outstanding rating, which is testament to the commitment of our centre team in ensuring every child gets the best start in life.

“The inspector’s comments about our parent partnership were particularly appreciated. We understand the importance of this valuable relationship in the care and education of our children.”

Assessed at ‘Outstanding’ in all areas, the centre was recognised for supporting children’s transition through nursery and into school and encouraging the development of independence skills at all ages.

Children are ‘taught that they have a voice’ and ‘develop an excellent understanding of people, communities and the wider world’. The centre has strong processes in place for supporting children with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

Communication and physical skills development is strong, with a wide range of learning opportunities available, and a ‘highly-effective’ key person system enables all children to make ‘excellent progress’.

There was also praise from the inspector for the high emphasis placed on staff professional development, which ensures the team are ‘continually refreshing and enhancing their knowledge’ to provide education of the highest quality.
