Doodle Do Day Nursery achieves Ofsted Good rating

26 October 2021

Doodle Do Day Nursery in Bishop’s Stortford has been awarded a ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted, following its inspection in September 2021.

The Nursery was graded ‘Good’ in all areas – quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.

The Ofsted inspector described the children’s behaviour at the Nursery as “very good”, noting that they “show care and consideration to others.”

The Inspector praised the way in which “children begin to become strong, independent and resilient as they build positive relationships” which encourages them to be “confident communicators.”

The report recognised that “children’s curiosity is developed well by staff”.

The Manager was commended for the way in which she recognises how “staff’s well-being is a high priority”, and how she provides “good attention when celebrating achievements and recognising the commitment of individuals.”

The Inspector also commented that “staff ‘treat days’ help them to feel valued, which raises morale. Staff confirm that they feel listened to and very much supported.”

Ofsted recognised the Nursery’s strong partnership with parents, noting that “parents say that ongoing communication via newsletters and online meetings is good, and this has been managed well during the COVID19 (coronavirus) pandemic”. It was also highlighted how “parents reflect positively on their children’s increasing physical skills”.
