Brand New Nursery Coming January 2016

Aston University Nursery will be moving to a brand new purpose built building in January 2016. The nursery will cater for up to 104 children aged from 3 months to 5 years and will be situated on Coleshill Street, just a short distance from Birmingham City Centre and a range of transport links. The purpose built nursery has been specifically designed to promote learning and development in a safe and secure environment. Each of the four nursery rooms will have direct access to the carefully landscaped garden with a separate zone for the under 2's. This will provide the opportunity for investigation and exploration and support all areas of learning as well as providing space for running, jumping, riding bikes and climbing. Our highly qualified and experienced team will be joining us in the move to our new building where we will aim to further improve our current Ofsted rating from Good to Outstanding. 

For further information please contact the nursery on 0121 204 4562 or email nurseryenquiries@aston.ac.uk.

Ofsted

Below are extracts from our most recent Ofsted report following inspection in May 2014.

"Teaching is good and staff plan effectively for individual children as a result of their observations and assessments.  Staff guide parents well on how to support children's learning at home."

"Staff have a thorough understanding of the robust safeguarding policies and procedures and are vigilant in their implementation of these so that children are safe."

"Children are very happy and settled and the caring staff ensure their needs are fully met, as they work closely with parents so that children receive consistency in their routines. Children are well behaved and confident and form good friendships at the nursery."

"Strong leadership and management means there is a very effective monitoring and self-evaluation which leads to continuous improvements in all aspects of the provision and in children's learning experiences."

"Children know they are valued, as their work is displayed on the walls and they are frequently praised by staff for their achievements and ideas."

"Children form very good relationships with the staff and other children and develop their social skills very well."

"Children are provided with healthy meals and snacks so that they learn about which foods are good for them."

"Children's room moves are managed very sensitively according to the needs of each child. Parents are involved in the process and children only change rooms when they are ready, both developmentally and emotionally."

"Children are safe and well protected. The management team is extremely vigilant in ensuring staff are well trained and have a full understanding of safeguarding and child protection."

"Staff work effectively with parents to support children's learning and development and their views are welcomed."

Our Ofsted number is EY420488. A copy of the full Ofsted report is available in the reception area of the Nursery and Pre-School, or can be viewed here on the OFSTED website >>
