Aside from being regulated by OFSTED, we also carry out our own self evaluations of our nursery and childcare practices.
We have recently concluded our QuILT (Quality Improvement in Learning and Teaching) quality assurance scheme with the London Borough of Redbridge. QuILt is a systematic and self reflective process by which we identify the strengths and areas of improvement in our nursery provision.
The QuILT scheme works through producing an audit of the nursery’s function against a set criteria, which is devised in relation to national standards. It is divided into 9 areas of nursery provision:
- Relationships & Interactions
- Aims, Values & Principles
- Equal Opportunities
- Learning & Teaching Strategies
- Observation, Assessment & Planning
- Parental partnership, Home & Community Liaison
- The Learning Experiences
- The Physical Environment
We have successfully completed the following modules: Relationships & Interactions, The Physical Environment, Leadership and Management and Tailored for Two year olds (part 1 & 2) helping us achieve the Two Year Old Champions Award!
