Cheshire Day Nursery has been rated “outstanding” in their latest Ofsted inspection. In the report, the setting was praised for the atmosphere and the impact the staff have on children.
The report issued by Ofsted, read: “All children are highly engaged playing with the vast array of activities and equipment available both indoors and outdoors.
“Staff are excellent role models; they are nurturing, considerate and respectful to children. The children mirror their behaviour and are considerate and respectful to each other.”
The report also included feedback from everyone: from children to staff and parents.
The setting was acquired by the Cheshire Day Nursery group in 2015, adding to their award-winning portfolio.
The nursery owners, sisters Brenda Burling and Julie Mannering, achieved the top rating in all areas, since taking over the setting and making a lot of improvements.
Brenda, who is a registered nurse and midwife said to the Warrington Guardian: “We took over with the intention of offering parents in Winwick, Chapelford and Newton-le-Willows outstanding childcare on their doorstep.
“Our immediate improvements earned a good rating within the first six months; then we further enhanced our offering by refurbishing the nursery’s indoor and outdoor premises, reopening the Kindergarten, and training a Forest School practitioner.
“The outstanding rating we have just received makes us extremely proud, as it reflects the hard work of every member of our Cheshire Day Nursery family.”
Talking about the nursery manager, Rachael Richards, who was a ‘Nursery Manager of the Year’ finalist in the national Nursery World Awards, Julie said: “In line with Ofsted’s recommendations, Rachael and her team are committed to enhancing the support for children, who are our priority in everything we do.
“The inspectors emphasised that our staff are nurturing and respectful role models, which reflects the ethos of our group as a whole.”
