Jurassic Childcare at Seachange Budleigh has been rated as 'Good' at their recent Ofsted inspection. 

His Majesty's Inspector Sarah Madge visited the centre on December 12 and the report was published on the Ofsted website on January 11.

The childcare facility was rated 'Good' in all areas, including the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.

The report said: "Children and their parents receive a warm welcome from staff when they arrive. Staff provide a calm and nurturing environment for the children, know them extremely well and are attentive to their care needs.

"Children are made to feel safe, secure and happy at the nursery. Staff give children their full attention when the children initiate discussion to express their thoughts and talk about their experiences. Babies and toddlers show good self-confidence when they copy the staff, who clap and cheer to praise the younger children's efforts and achievements. Children know the daily routines, listen to and follow staff's instructions and behave well. Leaders and staff plan a broad and stimulating curriculum for children to give them the knowledge and skills needed for later learning, including school.

"Leaders and staff work well together. They regularly discuss the children and how they can meet their individual care and learning needs. Staff morale is high."

The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

The inspector did comment that the school needed to "improve and develop staff's interactions with children to support and encourage some of the quieter and less confident children to speak more frequently and review the organisation and planning of activities in the pre-school room, to engage and challenge the older children more consistently".
