Saga’s Apples Nursery receives ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted report for second time running

Saga’s Apples Nursery is celebrating the results of their latest Ofsted report, marking their services ‘Outstanding’ for the second time in a row.

The South East Kent nursery, located at Saga’s Enbrook site in Sandgate, has been awarded the highest possible rating by education watchdog Ofsted, in a report published on 19th June 2019, following an inspection in 31st May.

Inspectors said the nursery has a highly positive atmosphere and “the staff skillfully focus on what sparks children’s interests. Relationships throughout are strong and secure providing the best possible environment to inspire confidence and motivate learning.”

The report added: “Managers and staff are extremely supportive to children and their families. Parents speak very highly of the support they receive. They comment on the excellent progress their children make because of the caring staff team.”

Nursery manager Michelle Dallison said: “We are delighted and so very proud to receive an ‘Outstanding’ result for the second time. It’s great to be recognised for all the learning and support we provide to the babies and children in our care, knowing that we’re giving them the confidence to develop before moving onto the next stages of their lives.”

James Challis, parent at Apples Nursery said, “The Apples Nursery team work incredibly hard to give every child the best start possible to their educational life.

“As a business, we are extremely lucky to have access to the wonderful childcare service available. To have this recognised within Ofsted’s inspection report is a great achievement for both the staff and children at Apples.”
