Two nurseries have been graded as good by Ofsted inspectors.
They reported that Manor Farm Day Nursery in London Road, Sandy has a “warm, welcoming and stimulating learning environment in which children are secure, happy and confident to express themselves.”
There is a wide range of resources and equipment to support their learning. The nursery is well organised and there are strong partnerships with parents.
To become outstanding the nursery should improve its observations of teaching and effectively use formalised systems of self-evaluation.
Toybox Day Nursery in Kingsfield Road, Biggleswade went from an outstanding grade in 2011 to good. There is a range of interesting activities and children make good progress.
The report says: “Children’s communication and language is promoted particularly well through positive interactions and enjoyable conversations with staff.”
Children have plenty of vigorous exercise. They are well prepared to move up to school. To further improve there could be more chances to develop problem solving skills.
