Nursery staff also create a warm and caring environment where children feel valued and respected, adds the report.

The nursery, which is based within the grounds of the College’s City campus, on Granville Road, has been graded ‘good’ in all four areas of inspection:

  • Effectiveness of the leadership and management.
  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment.
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare.
  • Outcomes for children.

James Smythe, Deputy Principal, The Sheffield College, said: "It’s great to see children thriving at both of our nurseries. We are very proud of our high quality childcare, and welcome Ofsted’s recognition of that.”

He added: “Our nurseries are open to all parents who live, work or study within the local community. I want to congratulate our senior nursery manager and staff on doing a fantastic job reflected by this latest inspection success.”

Students, staff and members of the local community use the 60-place nursery, which is open all year round. To read the Ofsted report, visit https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/inspection-reports/find-inspection-report/provider/CARE/300858
