The Ofsted Report

Both Nightingale Montessori Nurseries are registered and regularly inspected by Ofsted.

Both nurseries were graded Outstanding in all areas during their last Ofsted inspections.

Nightingale 1 Montessori nursery's last Ofsted inspection was on 11/09/2014. The nursery was graded  Outstanding in all areas.

'The staff meet children's needs exceptionally well through rigorous assessment and very well targeted next steps for learning.' 'Children make excellent progress because areas of learning are covered in much depth and breadth alongside Montessori areas. Staff provide a strong emphasis on children selecting their own activities according to ability which fosters independent learning, confidence and skill extremely well.' 'The quality of teaching is very strong. Staff instinctively know when to make timely interventions in children's play to extend their learning and support children very well to think things through for themselves.'  Ofsted 2014

Nightingale 2 Montessori nursery's last inspection was on 15/03/2017. The nursery was graded Outstanding in all four areas. 

'Children are exceptionally confident and deeply curious learners. Staff value children as individuals and form strong relationships with each child, who settle very well. Staff teach children excellent safety awareness and children behave in very safe ways.'

'Staff have excellent knowledge and understanding of very clear procedures to follow should they have any concerns around a child's welfare. Staff are highly vigilant regarding children's safety and carry out regular safety checks of the environment. The manager ensures that staff are suited to their roles by carrying out very thorough background checks.'

'Children have excellent understanding of and respect for others. They learn how to share and take turns very well, such as during group discussions. They wait for their turn to speak and listen to and value what others have to say. Children are extremely independent. For example, they have excellent self-dressing skills, help to prepare their snacks and clear their plates away. Children learn valuable skills for their future learning.' Ofsted 2017
