‘Outstanding’ again at Filkins!

July 26th, 2019 by Sarah Steel

https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/provider/16/EY361061  We are really delighted that in last month’s inspection at Filkins Nursery we were awarded ‘Outstanding’ again by OFSTED. It is so hard to get this grading for a second time, as the inspector is looking for continuous improvement and it can be hard to impress. However, she thought the staff were really fantastic and the report makes great reading. As she said, ‘no child is left behind’. What more could you hope for? Well done to the whole team. 

We had a great celebration at our Faringdon nursery when we were awarded Millie’s Mark for our excellence in First Aid, complete with a visit from Millie the Giraffe. The children were fascinated by the visitor – even our babies, who all wanted to meet her! To find out more about Millie’s Mark do have a look at http://www.milliesmark.com

We were so pleased to get confirmation this afternoon that we have been awarded Millie’s Mark at both our Gloucestershire nurseries. This recognises our commitment to paediatric first aid and our whole approach to first aid. The scheme is administered by the National Day Nurseries Association on behalf of the Department for Education. We are really chuffed to receive this award for both settings and staff will continue to keep first aid at the centre of their practice and will carry out regular training.

Millie’s Mark awarded to our Bampton nursery

November 4th, 2018 by Sarah Steel

We have just heard that our team at Bampton nursery have been awarded Millie’s Mark for excellence in paediatric first aid. For more information do have a look at www.milliesmark.com. This demonstrates that we go above and beyond the normal requirements for First Aid at a nursery and all our staff hold a paediatric first aid qualification.

We’re open at St Gabriel’s Academy, Houlton

November 4th, 2018 by Sarah Steel

We’re really pleased to be open and busy at our newest nursery near Rugby. Aisling and Roy already have a very busy and buzzing nursery and before and after-school club within St Gabriel’s C of E Academy at Houlton, which is just outside Rugby. The brand new school opened at the beginning of this term and the team offer sessions for pre-school children as well as to the many families who already use the school. They have made a great start and have already become an integral part of the school.
