Paintpots Hartford and Manchester rated “Good”

Ofsted report Sale Road day nurseryPaintpots Sale Road was registered with Ofsted in February 2014 with no conditions placed on our registration.  We were visited by Ofsted inspectors in July 2014 and given a rating of ‘for improvement.’ We are working on improving this and hope to receive a rating of ‘good’ or even ‘outstanding’ at our next inspection.

We already have a track record of success with Ofsted having achieved ratings of “good” at our nurseries at Hartford and in Manchester city centre.  The same working processes, staff selection procedures and training programmes are in use at Paintpots Sale Road.

The inspectors commented that:

“Children form strong bonds with key persons, who support their emotional needs well. Consequently, children feel secure to explore the environment and play.”

“Staff have a good knowledge and understanding of how to safeguard children. They are clear about how to respond should they be concerned about the welfare of a child. Therefore, children are effectively safeguarded.”

“Partnerships with parents are generally effective. As a result, children’s care needs are appropriately met and parents speak positively about the care their children receive.”
