Nurs­ery gets great Of­sted

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY SI­MON ROCKER

A NURS­ERY opened at Hol­land Park Sephardi Syn­a­gogue two years ago has won an out­stand­ing rat­ing from Of­sted.

Founded by Is­raelis Keren and As­saf Ben-Ezra, it has em­u­lated the suc­cess of their other nurs­eries in Hamp­stead Gar­den Sub­urb and at Bel­size Park Syn­a­gogue, which are also graded out­stand­ing.

Of­sted praised the “ex­cel­lent re­la­tion­ship” staff at Keren’s Nurs­ery, Hol­land Park, en­joy with chil­dren and fam­i­lies. “Chil­dren know that they have some­one spe­cial they can rely on in the ab­sence of their par­ents,” Of­sted’s re­port­ing in­spec­tor said.

A “rich, broad and var­ied” cur­ricu­lum pro­vided a “vast range of skills” to take into the next stage in learn­ing. Ex­cel­lent sup­port was given to chil­dren learn­ing English as an ad­di­tional lan­guage.

There was also good news from Of­sted for the Edg­ware of Lubav­itch kinder­garten. Ranked as re­quir­ing im­prove­ment ear­lier in the year, it has now been up­graded to good. The kinder­garten had in­creased the num­ber of qual­i­fied staff and en­sured that those han­dling food were trained in food hy­giene.
