We are extremely proud that Broadstone Christian Nursery was rated Outstanding in our last Ofsted inspection. Here is what Ofsted said about us.

Ofsted December 2009 (Awarded Outstanding)
Evaluations from Professionals to the nursery...
"It was good to see that all the children seemed to get involved and I think that is testament to the great atmosphere created in the nursery by the staff." October 2017
"How important the Christian aspect is in teaching the children in the nursery." October 2017
"This is the kind of nursery I would love to send my own children to. The children were all so happy, polite and being perfectly prepared for school. The staff are all brilliant with the children." September 2017
Professional students visiting nursery...
"I had a great time interacting with the staff and children. Definitely learnt a lot as well. Watching how kind the carers are to each child. Interacting with children aged 2-4 yrs old and developing a relationship in a short period of time. Children are more capable at being independent than I had imagined. Don't underestimate a child within one age group because they're all different." October 2018
"I have had some really great experiences with the children and wish I could stay longer." October 2017
"I like how well behaved the children are and how they know how to take turns with each other." October 2017
"From a medical student perspective, it was perfect opportunity to assess a child's development - seeing how a child's gross motor, fine motor, speech, language and communication skills have developed in comparison with their peers and at what stage of development in these areas they are expected to have achieved by their age." September 2017
Parent evaluations transition to school October 2018
Every September / October we send out an evaluation form to the parents whose children have just moved onto school, asking the question "Do you feel the skills your child developed at nursery helped him / her in the transition to school?"
The parents are asked if yes or no please state why / how and what we can do to improve as well as any suggestions or other comments.
This evaluation form has proved to be an invaluable piece of evidence not only for our own self-development but also for Ofsted.
