On Saturday 11th June 2016 we held our first public event since our comprehensive refurbishment. The event raised just over £600.00 for the NSPCC, a fantastic achievement! Attractions included a bouncy castle, raffle, cake stall, tombola, food and drink stalls, face painting and Calypso music from a steel band.
Jane Dawson, whose three-year-old daughter Caitlin attends the nursery, said: “Caitlin has really settled in with staff. The changes have been good, with improved security, food choices and with the quality of the ingredients. We had our first parents evening and that was great and useful. They have iConnect, the child’s digital learning log, which is great, as you can see your child’s development, and it’s informative and you as a parent can match with what they are trying to achieve.”
Nursery manager Sabrina said: “It was lovely to see all the families have some Fisherfield fun” and owner Nicky MacGill said: “The day was a great success.”
"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
"This provision is outstanding . All practitioners have high aspirations for children's achievement. This means the nursery is exceptional in the way it meets the needs of all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and they make very rapid progress towards the early learning goals."
Ofsted inspector Caroline Midgley
"The Staff always make my child feel happy, safe and secure. The Staff are always approachable, welcoming any queries, concerns and often encourage new ideas from parents and children. My daughter often get comments she is lovely and often models herself on the staff."
Scott, Olivia's Dad
"My son, eats food at nursery that he wouldn't / doesn't eat at home. Which is fantastic! I think the other children eating well shows him there something more to this dish than he thinks."
