An Aberdeen nursery has been given a positive review by inspectors.

Donview Nursery, Clifton Road, was given a “good” rating, the second highest possible, by the Care Inspectorate after a recent inspection.

Owner Amanda Wallace Davidson said: “The entire team do a wonderful job every day caring for the children of Donview Nursery and it’s lovely to hear the feedback from the parent and carers acknowledging this.

“We very much believe that children learn best when they feel safe and secure and we aim to provide a home-from-home setting where our children learn through play.”

One parent quoted in the report said: “I am extremely happy with the care provided for my child at Donview Nursery.

“The caring, warm, nurturing atmosphere that has been created, monitored and built upon by staff is absolutely fantastic, and makes me confident in my choice of Donview for my childcare needs.”

Another said: “It’s the envy of friends with kids at other nurseries. My child has made such wonderful progression since starting, and the nursery keeps an ongoing dialogue with regards to next steps.”

The Care Inspectorate made just one recommendation for the nursery, calling for more work to be done on personal care plans for each child, although it was noted that staff were fully aware of the needs of each child.

Donview has improved from the last inspection in July of 2017, where they were given an adequate rating.
