A recent Ofsted report has awarded Olveston Pre-School the highest grade possible:OUTSTANDING in ALL areas. Quoting from the report:
‘Children are active learners, well occupied, challenged and as a consequence they are eager and willing to learn and explore the world around them'.
‘Children are progressing exceptionally well in all areas of learning and development. Staff are excellent role models and they motivate children to learn by excellent interactions, open questions to help them think and problem solve'.
‘Parents of current and previous children speak highly of all the staff. They compliment the staff on the changes that have been put in place, the detailed information shared with them daily, the inclusion of all the children and how they are encouraged to be involved in their childs learning. Parents also commented that they felt the staff go above and beyond what is expected of them'.
‘The staff consider the outside area as a third room and children benefit from the free flow to this area whatever the weather. This area has a lovely raised garden where children grow vegetables, flowers and are able to dig at any time. There is a den area that the children thoroughly enjoy playing in'.
Helen Moorefield, Play Leader, says ‘We see every child as unique, planning activities and providing resources from children's interest and real life experiences. When children learn through play in a safe and secure environment they become independent. The staff endeavour to meet the needs of all the children, sharing their knowledge and experience as a team. I and all the team are thrilled with the result. What a fantastic end to a fun filled year'.
Olveston Pre-School is open mornings and afternoons for children aged 2½ - 4 years. We offer a safe, secure learning environment for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow. This is a happy and stimulating setting, with an excellent outdoor environment where children have free access from the indoors to the outdoors. All staff are friendly and qualified, offering a range of experiences, with staff constantly furthering their training. Olveston Pre-School believes play underpins all development and learning for children. They develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.
