Twizzle Tops in Basildon was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted for the third inspection in a row. They were rated ‘good’ over the 5 categories following their inspection in April.
The nursery has a total of 109 children and was told to work on the children’s development during outside activities so they can then be graded ‘outstanding’.
Inspector Tina Mason said: “Staff effectively observe children during their play and assess their progress. They quickly identify areas for development and confidently use this information to plan stimulating activities that engage and motivate children to learn.
“Staff provide a safe, secure and well-resourced environment for babies and children.
“They complete effective risk assessments to ensure all areas of the provision and equipment are suitable for use.”
Ms Mason added: “Children benefit from warm relationships with the staff that care for them. This helps them to feel relaxed, happy and enjoy their time at nursery.
“The manager and staff team are passionate about their roles and responsibilities.
“They use self-evaluation as an ongoing tool to help staff reflect upon areas that they can improve.”
