Oops-a-Daisy Childcare ‘requires improvement’ – again

Oops-a-Daisy Childcare is graded ‘requires improvement’ AGAIN as staff miss opportunities to enhance children’s independence, according to Ofsted.

Oops-a-Daisy Childcare 1

The Ofsted report for the Kembrey Park-based childcare provision shared similarities with its previous ‘requires improvement’ report from November 2014.

Today’s release of Oops-a-Daisy Childcare’s Ofsted grading reported a number of reasons why the setting is not yet graded as good, including that staff ‘miss opportunities in daily routines to enhance children’s self-care and independence as they often do things for children that they could do for themselves’.

The report also stated that the ‘provider does not always support staff to improve experiences for children’ and the ‘quality of teaching for communication and language varies and is not consistently good’.

Although, it wasn’t all bad news for the provider. Positives included that ‘staff have warm interactions with children’ and that staff ‘adapt their practice well for disabled children and those who have special educational needs’.

Swindon 24 requested a comment from the manager of the provision earlier today, but according to staff, the manager is on sick leave and the acting manager was at college.

The full Ofsted report can be found on their website, using reference EY433238.
