A nursery in Braintree has improved significantly since its last inspection.

Seesaw Nursery, run by Action for Children, was rated inadequate by inspectors in May, but has been rated good five months later.

Parents speak positively about the nursery and safeguarding has been improved, which is having a positive impact on making children safe.

The report, published on November 7, said: "The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

"Revised procedures for monitoring accidents and existing injuries are implemented effectively.

"Staff provide children with interesting experiences that help them to learn.

" Relationships between staff and children are good. Staff are keen to help children behave well and to be kind to each other.

"Children make good progress from their starting points on entry to nursery.

" Children develop their concentration skills and are prepared for school."

There are 72 children on roll at the nursery and 12 members of staff, nine of which have an early years qualification at level three.

The nursery also receives early education funding for two, three and four-year-old children.

Nursery manager Sarah Lord said: “We’re all delighted with the results of this latest Ofsted inspection, it is a testament to all the team’s hard work since May.

“In order to keep driving up standards we’re committed to ongoing learning from the report’s recommendations and will continue to strive towards delivering the best possible services for children and families in Braintree.”
