Following on from the excellent Ofsted report on education practice the Nursery achieved an outstanding result in 2010 from Ofsted's assessment of care standards in the Nursery.
Strode College Day Nursery is registered with OFSTED and provides childcare for children aged from 2 years up to school age. The service is for children of students studying at Strode College, Strode College staff and members of the local community.
Strode College Day Nursery operates from a purpose built facility. It features a secure outdoor play area and is a bright, colourful, safe environment with caring well-qualified staff.
The children are encouraged to develop their personal, social and emotional skills along with communication, language and literacy, knowledge and understanding of the world, creative development, problem reasoning and numeracy and physical development. The Nursery use facilities and opportunities from within the College to enhance children’s learning and development. For example trips to the theatre, use of the sports hall, College library.
Partnership with parents is considered to be essential and parents are well informed about the nursery routine and activities, and have opportunities to discuss their child's progress with staff.
