What Ofsted Say...

The new manager and the staff team have positive attitudes and are dedicated to providing a high-quality service to children and their families. They continually share ideas and have clear action plans in place to address the improvements that are identified. Planning and assessment is precise and sharply focused on each child's individual needs. It is effectively shared with parents and when appropriate, other professionals. Therefore, there is a shared approach to children's learning and development. Staff are good role models and give children lots of positive praise and encouragement. Children learn to respect each other and behave appropriately. Partnerships with parents are good. Parents express very positive comments about the nursery showing they are very pleased with the service they receive.

Extra Curricular Activities 

At Parklands Nursery, we offer extra curricular activities including music and Spanish classes. These classes are super exciting for the children and throughly planned each week to ensure the children are happy and engaged.


Spanish Classes

A weekly one hour lesson for Pre School children is made up of short activities which capture the children’s interest and introduce them to Spanish in a fun and enjoyable manner.

The qualified tutor presents and reviews basic Spanish structures and vocabulary each week using rhymes, games and role play. The lessons consolidate the Early Years themes, covering topics which are relevant to the pre-school child, but with a Spanish twist.
