Highland Early Learning and Childcare setting receives positive report after recent Care Inspectorate inspection
Highland Council welcomes the Care Inspectorate Inspection report on St. Joseph's RC Primary Nursery and After School Care Club published following the visit by Inspectors in March of this year (2020).
Following the inspection, the ELC setting has been graded:
- Quality of care and support – 5 (Very Good)
- Quality of environment – 4 (Good)
The report highlights:
“Children were well cared for early year practitioners and support workers, who knew them all very well. The staff's experience ensured measured interactions with the children and they promoted a real ethos of respect in their interactions with the children and their parents/carers. Children enjoyed a fun place to play and learn. We noted children had opportunities to develop an interest in arts and crafts, growing vegetables in the nursery garden. Those children spoken with clearly experienced a sense of achievement linked art work in which they had a sense of pride”.
Head Teacher Catherine Browne said: “The team in the Nursery and Out of School Care Club have worked very hard to ensure a happy, safe and purposeful play-based learning environment for the children and we are pleased that this is reflected in the report”.
