OFSTED 2015 Report

Staff demonstrate a secure knowledge of how children learn and develop. They provide a good range of activities and adapt the learning environment based on children’s interests and varying levels of development. Therefore, children are motivated and eager to learn and explore. Staff carefully monitor children’s progress and take prompt actions to address any gaps in learning. As a result, all children, including those who are learning English as an additional language, make good progress from their starting points.
Staff make good use of settling-in arrangements, such as visiting children in their homes prior to starting the pre-school. Therefore, children settle quickly and parents have opportunities to exchange information about their children.
The management team has developed an effective self-evaluation system. They seek the views of staff, parents and children, and demonstrate a clear vision for further developments in order to achieve excellence.

The team is very welcoming and warm and the onboarding and induction programme is great, as you will be provided with a lot of courses and training for you to gain knowledge of what is expected from you in your role.

There are a lot of benefits for the staff and a goody bag for the new staff!

"The training at Fountain has been amazing, we have many courses available to us which really help us with the OfSted inspections.

The progression here has been great. Within 2 years I have gone from Nursery Assistant, to Room Leader now 3rd incharge. Career progression is really valued.

I enjoy seeing the children develop from teaching them phonics to seeing them read by the end of the year."
