OFSTED have praised a Harlow pre-school. Sunflower Sherards is based at Ployters Road and was inspected in January.

The report states:

Staff and parents work together to help children settle into pre-school. The successful partnerships offer children ongoing support and help them to enjoy pre-school experiences.

Children benefit from the opportunities to learn outdoors. Staff plan for teaching all areas of learning outside. They have enhanced the area to make it interesting and stimulating. Staff support children to make choices and decisions about the resources they use and where they use them.

The staff make good use of the children’s interests to engage them in learning through play. For example, they support some children’s wish to dress up and wear a costume for all play experiences.

Staff are skilled in supporting children’s speaking and listening skills. They skilfully gain children’s attention before speaking, use signing to support speech and listen attentively to children. Children who speak English as an additional language are well supported to gain a good understanding of English and the confidence to use it in their play.

The team of staff successfully reflects on their practice and the experiences they offer children, in order to identify aspects that can be improved. They also regularly meet with the manager for supervision meetings where they discuss their key-person role, the children and practice issues.
