“… the drive for continuous improvement is relentless, producing outstanding provision for children’s care and learning.”
Established in 1996, Fisherfield Childcare’s excellent reputation as a provider of quality childcare and education to parents has been achieved with the Fisherfield Childcare core values.
“Your child ‘s time should be happy, exciting, fun and secure. We will always make progress with your child’s development, meeting their care and learning needs; with our child-centred approach to preparing your child’s next steps and celebrate some very important developmental achievements.“
We recognise our quality assurance processes, which start with our staff assisted by strong leadership and management support;
Fisherfield Childcare has an established 360 degree approach to quality assurance: to monitor, reflect and review, analyse, evaluate, consult and implement. We do more than implement a system or work towards a standard, we embed excellent working practices to enhance our staff working lives and our children experiences to progress their development.
We seek consultation from experts for our full quality management approach such as health and safety, leadership development and the development of our children. Independent consultants monitor, evaluate and advise Fisherfield Childcare to ensure we are constantly striving to provide the best care for our children.
“The nursery and its parent company have a deeply embedded culture of reflection and evaluation, as well as sharing excellent practice. This means that the drive for continuous improvement is relentless, producing outstanding provision for children’s care and learning.” Jennifer Kennaugh, Ofsted Inspector
Every child is unique and we at Fisherfield Childcare recognise our duty to provide:
We ensure all our facilities and equipment are designed for our children to provide the ultimate enabling environment to develop and progress each child at every stage of their learning.
“Performance management of staff, including training needs, is rigorous, so that quality of teaching and standards for children welfare are maintained to an exceptionally high level.” Jennifer Kennaugh, Ofsted Inspector
Our quality management processes requires two-way communication. We value and appreciate effective communication, support and respect with parents and carers to assist in the development of all the children.
We have various communication channels that include:
"Staff have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the children's individual needs and provide a stimulating environment where all children are excited and motivated to learn. Observations of children are consistently used to plan for children's individual next steps in learning."
Linda Shore, Ofsted Inspector
