East Dulwich Nursery celebrates ‘outstanding’ rating

It was all fun and laughter at an East Dulwich nursery, after mums and kids gathered to celebrate its ‘outstanding’ Ofsted review.

Gumboots Community Nursery in Crystal Palace Road held the party last week, with Dulwich and West Norwood MP Helen Hayes attending.

After an inspection from the schools’ and children services regulator in May, the little nursery was told it had “exceptionally strong leadership” in the form of manager Carol Fuller.

The report said: “Staff use excellent observation, assessment and planning systems to support and check children’s learning. There is a strong focus on children’s interests, achievements and what they need to learn next.

“Children rapidly learn to take responsibility for their personal care. Staff are excellent examples in helping children to develop good manners, social skills and independence.”

A spokeswoman for the nursery, which is run by LEYF Nurseries, said: “‘Outstanding’ ratings are an impressive achievement at the best of time, especially so when a nursery is going through such a transition period. Their last inspection was also an ‘Outstanding’ but we’re very proud they managed to hold on to that while there was so much going on.”
