So you’re interested in Cherubs Worksop? Let Nursery Manager, Jane tell you more about it…
Cherubs Worksop is a purpose built nursery on the school site of Sparken Hill Academy. There are regular bus and train links into Sheffield, Nottingham and further afield and direct access to the A1 and A60, which means it’s great for both local and commuting parents alike.
When it comes to Ofsted I’m more than proud to say that we have maintained our Ofsted “Outstanding” grading for some time now. In our most recent inspection, which took place on 22nd August 2016, Ofsted Inspector, Hayley Ruane praised the nursery, commenting “the well-qualified staff team has an excellent understanding of how children learn through play and what to do to support their progression. They plan activities and experiences that build on their interests and support them to make rapid progress in their learning. Moreover, staff are extremely effective in supporting children who speak English as an additional language to make excellent progress.” If you would like to read more, please download the report here.
We have a very well-established team here at Cherubs Worksop. Many of my colleagues have been here for years and it’s great to see the same smiley faces everyday. It’s great for us and even better for the children as it means that they are able to build strong bonds with the childcare team, enhancing their time at nursery. All our childcare team are DBS checked and training towards accredited qualifications. We also train the entire team in Paediatric First Aid and Safe Guarding, the children’s safety and welfare is paramount and we know, first hand, that there can be no compromise on this.
Finally, a little more about me. I have been part of Cherubs Nurseries since 2007. I decided to pursue a career in Childcare as I wanted to support families and ensure that children had the best start in life. Over the past 12 years I have been fortunate to progress to where I am today and work across many of our nurseries, which has provided me with some amazing experiences. Thinking about my qualifications, I hold a Level 5 in Management, Level 4 in Childcare and Level 2 in Team Leading.
There is so much more I would love to tell you about our nursery. However, nothing beats coming to view the nursery for yourself. With that being said, I would like to invite you to come for a show round at your leisure to see what makes us so special.
