Children thriving at city nursery

Have your say

CHILDREN at a Wearside nursery school are getting their education off to a flying start.

Ofsted bosses have rated Tavistock House Day Nursery as good overall.

A report into the Borough Road centre, said: “Pre-school children develop exceptional communication and literacy skills for their age.

“This is because staff are highly skilled when teaching story telling skills, immersing them creatively and exploring imaginative language. Children’s needs are quickly identified, and exceptionally well met through the robust and effective partnerships between parents and external agencies.”

The nursery caters for 286 children in the early years age range and supports youngsters with special needs and those for whom English is an additional language.

Inspectors said: “Children are warmly welcomed into this bright and highly-stimulating nursery where their individual learning and development needs are very well met.

“Staff have very good knowledge of how young children learn.

“They observe them regularly and use this information effectively to plan inspiring, creative and imaginative experiences both in the indoor and outdoor environment.

“The quality of teaching is consistently good and occasionally outstanding.”
