Springboard was last inspected in February 2022 and we are pleased to be awarded ‘Outstanding’.
This provision is outstanding-
- Children thrive in this welcoming, inclusive environment. It feels like a family,
where everyone cares for each other and the smallest achievements are excitably
celebrated. The highly motivated, enthusiastic practitioners are led by an
inspirational manager and leadership team. Children calmly arrive at the setting,
and are supported to settle in their own time. Parents confidently leave them in the
care of the warm, experienced practitioners.
- Children have fantastic consistency of care. The pre-school works very closely
with other settings that children attend. For example, practitioners from the
other settings are invited in to access specialist training, and practitioners speak
on the phone, sharing relevant and useful information about children.
- Parents cannot praise the setting enough. They feel confident leaving their
children, and say the manager and practitioners go ‘above and beyond’,
supporting them with all aspects of their family life. For example, the setting
runs ‘Saturdads’, which gives dads a place to come with their children, meet
other dads in a similar situation, and speak to practitioners.
- Practitioners know the children and families extremely well and children are
skilfully supported in their learning. Practitioners’ interactions are of a high
quality. They are incredibly enthusiastic and clearly love what they do. They use
highly successful strategies to keep children’s interest and help them to be as
deeply engaged as possible.
