Uxbridge College Nursery is celebrating after it was judged 'outstanding' by Ofsted inspectors for the education it provides.

Comments by inspectors about the nursery, which is at the College's Hayes Community Campus, off Coldharbour Lane, Hayes, included:

* "The leadership and management of the nursery education is outstanding."

* "Staff have an expert knowledge and understanding of the Foundation Stage curriculum."

* "Children's reading and writing skills are exceptionally well developed."

* "Parents' views about their child's needs and interests are actively sought before the child starts."

* "They (the children) are very polite."

* "All children are very settled and confident."

* "Children develop excellent levels of independence."

The standards of care at the nursery, which were also assessed during the inspection in February, were judged to be 'good.'

The nursery, which has 14 staff, caters for children aged three months to five years from the local community and student base.

Sue Fountain, Nursery Manager, said: "All our nursery staff are exceptionally committed and capable, and it is terrific news that their work is being recognised in this way. Ensuring young children not only start learning to read and write, but also develop confidence and good personal and social skills - and enjoy themselves - is a complex job. This report has confirmed not only that we do all this, but we do it outstandingly."

Michael Farley, Vice Principal for External Liaison, said:"The excellent work at the nursery lays the foundations for youngsters to succeed in life, and is just part of Uxbridge College's strategy to support children and their families. The College's new Sure Start Children's Centre at the Hayes campus already runs events for children under five and their parents, and we are looking to extend the nursery to provide a purpose-built space for the new service."
