Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Cam­bus­lang nurs­ery has been given a near per­fect re­port by the Care In­spec­torate.

St Bride’s Nurs­ery was given an unan­nounced‘themed’in­spec­tion on Wed­nes­day, May 11, with the find­ings be­ing pub­lished last week.

It was graded‘very good’in three of the four in­di­ca­tors and‘good’in the other.

The in­spec­tors de­scribed the chil­dren as“happy and en­gaged,” and al­most all par­ents ques­tioned praised the fa­cil­ity, which is si­t­u­ated in the new St Bride’s Pri­mary build­ing.

The in­spec­tors said:“On the day of the in­spec­tion visit there were 36 chil­dren present at the morn­ing ses­sion and 29 in the af­ter­noon.

“It was noted that the chil­dren were happy and en­gaged in a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties. We ob­served them play­ing in­de­pen­dently and in small groups. Dur­ing the in­spec­tion chil­dren had the op­por­tu­nity to play out­doors.

“The in­ter­ac­tions be­tween staff and chil­dren were friendly and nur­tur­ing which helped cre­ate a pos­i­tive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment for the chil­dren.

“Chil­dren told us they had good fun at nurs­ery be­cause there was lots of things to play with.”

Staff were praised, with the re­port say­ing:“They de­scribed con­fi­dently their roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in pro­tect­ing chil­dren and who they would speak with if con­cerned about a child’s well-be­ing.”

Par­ents also re­ported pos­i­tive changes since a new man­age­ment team were put in place.

The in­spec­tors said:“The new man­age­ment team had made good progress in re­la­tion to de­vel­op­ing an ef­fec­tive qual­ity as­sur­ance sys­tem.”

They added:“The man­age­ment team en­cour­aged par­ents and staff to take ad­van­tage of the open door pol­icy to share their ideas on how to im­prove the ser­vice for the chil­dren at­tend­ing.”

A top grade of five was awarded to the nurs­ery for qual­ity of care and sup­port, qual­ity of staffing and qual­ity of man­age­ment and lead­er­ship.

The nurs­ery scored a four on qual­ity of en­vi­ron­ment.
