Ofsted Inspection – Outstanding!
It gives us great pleasure to let you all know that Creations Community Children’s Centre nursery have achieved an ‘Outstanding’ grading in all areas of their Ofsted inspection in March. Creations team are busy planning a celebration event for children and families in early May. I am sure you will all join me in congratulating the staff involved and it really shows the passion and commitment of the team.
Some of the feedback from the inspector.
“Overall assessment is incredibly meticulous, engagement of other services is timely and they are making a massive difference”.
“Safeguarding is beyond effective and is the best I have ever seen”.
“Leadership – you have high expectations, staff are scrutinised, performance management is excellent, staff are well supported and there is evidence of progressions. You have good staff that are well motivated and enthusiastic about their work”.
“Partnership with parents is exemplary; partnership with health is a key strength. The way you spend funding is good. The nursery is warm and caring and nurturing and the flexibility of how you settle children is in excellent. Children are clearly at the centre of the provision”.
“Evaluation and analysis processes and systems for monitoring show impact and are excellent as is multi-agency practice, gaps are narrowing giving impact on children’s lives”.
The Creations Community Children’s Centre includes a friendly nursery provision. Our aim is to provide a happy and safe environment for children to develop to their full potential. We believe that early childhood is the foundation for a child’s journey through life. Each stage of development and learning should be valued and respected in its own right.
We welcome all children aged birth to 5 years and endeavour to meet their individual needs.
We are registered with the Local Authority and OFSTED accredited. The nursery operates under the umbrella of the Family Services, and is part of the North/East children’s Centre locality. We pride ourselves in working in partnership with parents/carers, local schools, professionals and the community.
The overall registration is for 49 children this is broken down into 9 children in our 0 – 2 years nursery room, 24 children in our 2 – 5 years nursery room and 16 places for our crèche provision.
The nursery meets the recommended child to adult ratio – 1 adult to 3 children aged 0 – 2 years, 1 adult to 4 children aged 2 – 3 years and 1 adult to 8 children aged 3 – years.

2. Lots of spare underwear and socks if your child is toilet training
3. Nappies, baby wipes and nappy cream if your child requires them

For young babies who are having milk in bottles we ask that you bring their feeds in a pre-measured container with a sterilised bottle as we will make up bottles of milk fresh when needed.
