Ofsted

On 8th January 2018 Ofsted carried out an inspection and judged Village End as a ‘Good’ provision. At the end of the visit, our inspector referred to the Ofsted Early Years manual and pointed out that we met the ‘Outstanding’ criteria in all 4 judgement areas, but was unable to award outstanding as we have only been operating as an Early Years provider for less than 1 year and require an extensive  track record to gauge progression. However we our very proud to receive such a great judgement and intend to continue to deliver a high level of childcare between now and our next inspection to ensure we maintain our excellent grading.

Hi Tracey,

Good luck with your Ofsted inspection, please find below a few words from me…

“Village end has been wonderful for my daughter. She has attended from the age of 2 and treats the staff like they are family. She can’t wait to get there each day, and has made massive improvements with her reading, writing and spelling. I am actually incredibly impressed in her development and she learns new skills every week. The nursery has continued to improve constantly since it opened, with a refreshing approach of listening to what parents want. I am so glad I found Village End, and will be incredibly sad when it’s time for my little one to move on to school”

Kind regards,
Hana,


Hi Tracey,

All the best tomorrow with your Ofsted inspection.

I’ve experienced many childcare establishments over the last few years and I’ve found Village end has the right combination of having high standards, but in a relaxed and nurturing environment.
They are always very approachable and  have always asked me for feedback as to how I feel they can improve my sons experience and I feel very comfortable leaving my child there.
Children say exactly how it is! My son is very excited to go to Village end & therefore I feel that they are meeting his individual needs. They will always give me a synopsis of his development during the day, and have been very helpful in giving me me some guidance, in my sons next development stage.
They let children be children and I feel they learn more through play and various activities. Some childcare establishments  are so focused on ticking the boxes,  that they loose the main point that children want to play and have fun.
I highly recommend Village End and I wish them all the best.
