The Kiddiwinks Nursery in Scarborough has been rated as ‘good’ following a recent inspection by Ofsted.

Located at Lady Edith’s Park, Scarborough, the Kiddiwinks Nursery has received positive feedback and praise from inspectors for its “welcoming and nurturing nursery environment”.

Ofsted said that “overall, children benefit from high-quality interactions with motivated and enthusiastic staff”.

The nursery’s partnership with parents was described as “good” and parents said they were “happy and highly appreciative” of the care and support their children received.

However, Ofsted also made recommendations for improvement and highlighted areas including outdoor play and learning opportunities at home.

The report states that the nursery should “strengthen the deployment of staff during outdoor play to provide consistent and purposeful interactions for children”

It added that the “stimulating outdoor area is a real strength of the nursery and is used all year round to develop children’s imaginations and curiosity”.
