Congratulations to all the staff at Weddington Pre-School who recently received ‘Outstanding’ judgements across all the four inspection areas - quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.
The exciting and captivating environment spurs children's thirst to learn.
Children are highly motivated, and their levels of confidence are exceptional. They have a can-do attitude to learning.
The excellent support of staff encourages children to make their own decisions based on what they know about each situation. As such, children form their own conclusions and begin to problem solve.
Children become highly skilled at regulating their own behaviour, which is commendable. They know how many children can play at an activity and understand that they need to wear a 'red band' to play.
Children independently use a sand timer to measure how long it is before their turn, waiting patiently for others to finish.
Staff know the children very well. They are passionate and hold a shared vision that all children achieve the very best they can.
Support for children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is a strong feature at the pre-school.
Parents express how 'fabulous' the pre-school is and how their children are happy and settle quickly. They form warm, close bonds with staff who care for them.
A precise focus on children's emotional well-being allows them to think about how they feel. They learn that it is okay to be happy and sad, and how to make simple changes that will affect how they feel.
