Our last inspection at Hardmoor took place on 13 April 2016 and we were delighted to be awarded an 'Outstanding' status. The inspector said that 'Staff know children exceptionally well. They treat each child as an individual and consistently give children time and emotional support to help them manage their own feelings and behaviour' (report no. 825505)
It is a true testament to our dedicated staff and volunteers.
Our last inspection at Thornhill took place on 9 May 2016 and we are delighted to report that we addressed the problems highlighted last year and we are now rated a 'good' provider. The inspector stated that 'the management team and staff work hard to create stimulating activities that support children effectively in their learning. Children make good progress from their starting points, particularly in their communication, physical and social development.'
