In the end I decided that maybe I was just be over paranoid as all of the other mummies appeared to be just dropping off and going. So I did the same. Can’t say that I haven’t been worrying about it all day though so I thought I’d just have a look at their ofsted report. Oh my I wish I hadn’t! In brief… no CRB checks for any staff, no children observation and achievement folders, no key workers, The effectiveness of safeguarding scored inadequate and overall the quality of the provision is satisfactory.
Now let’s be honest here a three year old doesn’t care whether he has a key worker or his own folder with chapter and verse on how he is developing. He just knows that when he goes there he has fun with his friends in a nice relaxed atmosphere. What more could you ask for for your child?
I like to think of myself as a fairly laid back kind of person, (the other half calls me his little hippy chick) but I fail to be laid back when it comes to my children’s safety. So what do you think, am I just falling into the trap of our ridiculous modern day obsession with health and safety and ticking all of the right boxes? Is this nursery bad for Henry just because they’re not fulfilling the government written standards on how our children should be learning?
