What a roaring success
Good teaching and strong role models among it's staff have helped Lions Cub Nursery improve it's Ofsted rating. Lions Cub Nursery was visited by inspector Susan McCourt who raised it's rating from 'satisfactory' to 'GOOD'. In her report, Ms McCourt said all youngsters made good progress at the nursery where staff had a good understanding of how children learned and planned activities accordingly. She noted the high priority placed on safety and the efforts made to teach children about hygiene and road safety. When it came to personal development of the children, Ms McCourt noted how older children built up their confidence and self-esteem by helping their younger friends. She said, "Staff are strong role models for children, encouraging children to cooperate in play and take care of each other." Eastbourne See our Lions Cub Nursery parent recommendations.
