Ryhall Childcare Centre rated 'good' in Ofsted inspection

A nursery has been praised for providing a ‘warm welcome’ to children who ‘arrive happy to begin their day’.

Ofsted inspectors rated Ryhall Childcare Centre as ‘good’ across the board following a visit at the end of January.

The inspection team found that children at the nursery have become independent and the older ones have quickly learnt to recognise their names and register themselves on arrival at the centre.


January’s report praised the staffs’ high expectations for all children to achieve their potential.

At the nursery, children start their day with physical outdoor activities and learn the importance of warm-up tasks.

The report states that “children complete their ‘daily mile’ around the outer edge of the field” which “prepares children well for their day of play and learning”.

It was noted that the behaviour in the nursery is very good and “mirrors the calm and happy atmosphere staff create”.

Ofsted said: “All children are respectful and kind towards each other,” adding: “Children test out their ideas and explore in a safe and secure environment.

“They are confident, articulate and express themselves effectively.”

The safeguarding arrangements at Ryhall Childcare Centre are effective as staff demonstrate a good knowledge.

To make further progress, the management of the centre was advised to make better use of opportunities to extend children’s understanding of mathematical concepts, to review the organisation of large-group activities, and support children to take an active part and concentrate.

The nursery, registered in 2011, has five staff with 24 children on its roll aged up to four.

Ofsted also rated it ‘good’ in its last inspection during 2015.

Positive attitude to learning is praised by Ofsted
