Aberdeen nursery given ‘good’ rating in new report from Care Inspectorate

Children at an Aberdeen nursery learn to work together and build friendships thanks to the encouragement of staff, inspectors have said.

The Care Inspectorate sent a team of monitors to visit the nursery of Dyce School, on Gordon Terrace in Dyce, on September 20 and have now published their report.

They awarded the nursery, which provides care for up to 60 children, a “good” rating for environment and staffing – the third best of six possible ratings.

“Children were seen to be happy and settled in the nursery and able to choose from a wide variety of activities, both indoors and out,” the report said.

It added: “With the encouragement of staff they were learning to work together and building friendships.”

Parents told inspectors they were positive about their child’s experience at the nursery.

One parent said their child was happy to come and enjoyed a wide range of activities, including access to the large outside area.
