Staff at Aberdeen nursery commended for providing warm welcome to kids

An Aberdeen university’s nursery is warm, bright and airy for children, inspectors have said.

Monitors from the Care Inspectorate watchdog visited Bright Horizons care centre at Robert Gordon University on November 10 and have now published their inspection report.

The facility provides care for up to 99 children during the daytime on weekdays.

“Children were welcomed to an environment that was warm, bright and airy,” said the report.

It added: “The use of natural resources created an inviting space for children to explore with their friends.

“Staff offered some exciting sensory activities for children like water and messy play.

“Children enjoyed these activities exploring textures and their curiosity.”

One parent told the inspectors: “The main strength of the nursery is the staff team, they are welcoming and are always smiling making me confident in the care my child receives.”

Inspectors rated the nursery “adequate” in care, support, environment, staffing, management and leadership – the fourth best of six possible ratings.
