A Welwyn Garden City nursery received a positive grading following its latest Ofsted inspection.
Busy Bees Day Nursery in Kestral Way was graded good in all four key areas: effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, personal development and outcomes for children.
The report – published earlier this month – followed an inspection on March 13, when inspectors reported positively on several areas, including children’s safety and development.
Inspectors said: “The well-qualified staff team regularly observes children and makes assessments of their development.
“Staff plan interesting and innovative activities to support children’s next steps in learning.”

“Children behave well and staff are good role models.”

All children, including those with special needs, were found to be making good progress, and had plenty of opportunities for improving handwriting and being creative.
Busy Bees looks after children from three months to five years old, and employs 28 members of child staff care, of which 24 hold appropriate qualifications.
The nursery was was not graded ‘outstanding’, however, because information sharing between staff was not consistently shared between colleagues to ensure children remained settled, according to the report.
Inspectors also said that, on occasions, children did not have enough time to think about how to respond to staff questions.
