Ofsted praise Smiles Montessori in Newhall

Education: Secondary / Fri 2nd Nov 2018 at 09:08am

OFSTED has praised a Harlow day care centre for children following a recent inspection.

The education inspectors came to Smiles Montessori in Newhall in October.

The school has been rated as “Good”.

The report states:

Good reflective practice includes the feedback from staff, parents and children. This provides the management team with a clear focus on what the setting excels at and where there is potential to improve further. Attention to continuous improvement is good.

Staff know children very well. They use information from parents and their own observations to plan activities that engage and challenge children to make good progress.

Babies play in a calm and peaceful environment. Staff have a good understanding of how to promote their development. They model basic skills and language effectively, which helps to support learning.

Strong routines are in place which help to support children’s understanding of daily tasks. For instance, toddlers successfully learn how to tidy up at the end of the session. Pre-school children’s independence is supported well. For example, they get themselves ready to go outside and they serve their own lunch.

Support for children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is effective. Staff liaise with parents and work very closely with external agencies.
