Busy Bees nursery is celebrating an Outstanding rating following its latest Ofsted inspection.

It attained a perfect score in three areas of inspection – meeting the needs of the range of children, contributing to the well-being of the children, and the effectiveness of the leadership and management.

Ofsted praised the nursery’s partnership with parents, noting that: “Staff build very strong partnerships with parents to help ensure high-quality outcomes for the children. Parents are highly appreciative of the ongoing information and support they receive.”

The staff at the nursery, at King George Hospital, Barley Lane, Goodmayes, were also praised for “planning stimulating, interesting and challenging opportunities,” which help children to “make rapid progress with their development”.

Child development was given a special mention as Ofsted recognised that “children have an excellent sense of belonging. They can select and choose independently from exceptionally well displayed resources”.

Joanne McAllister, nursery manager, said: “This endorsement proves that all our hard work is recognised and the outstanding care we strive to provide is delivered.

“I am very proud of the whole team. We work really well together and every member of staff works tirelessly to ensure that every area of care and education is provided at the highest level for our children and their families. We’re thrilled to bits and so are our parents - we will definitely be celebrating for a few weeks to come.”
