Comments from Ofsted

"Strong professional development for staff since the last inspection. Supervisions procedures are now embedded. They identify areas for developing teaching standards that impact positively on children’s learning."

"Staff have high expectations of children. They show a positive regard to the achievements children make and they celebrate these readily. This helps to boost children’s confidence and self-esteem"

"Babies and children are happy and secure within the building. They have developed strong bonds with staff, who are caring and attentive to their needs. This contributes to their emotional wellbeing"

Partnership With Parents

Team Peek A Boo is committed to building strong partnerships with parents by encouraging parents to take part in all aspects of nursery life.

Parents and carers are invited to monthly stay and play sessions as mentioned above along with regular parent’s evenings and events.

Our online learning journal system allows parents to contribute at any time to their child’s learning journal along with receiving weekly updates of your child’s development.

Parents are able to share their ideas and views through the comments box, parental questionnaire and via the parents committee.

Here at Peekaboo Day Care we offer an open doors policy encouraging parents to discuss any ideas, comments or concerns they may have. We pride ourselves on creating a positive relationship with you and your child so you feel welcome and both your needs are met.
