Big tick for Temple nursery

A PRE-SCHOOL centre in Midlothian has earned a good report card from education inspectors.

They are “very satisfied” with the overall quality of provision at Temple Nursery and Playgroup.

Key strengths of the centre are its positive and nurturing ethos; staff awareness of children as individual learners and their needs; well-developed relationships with parents in supporting children’s learning; the impact of improvement planning on children’s experiences; and the effectiveness of the Forest School programme in bringing learning to life.

Agreed improvement targets include developing a high-level strategic plan for implementing Curriculum for Excellence, including arrangements to evaluate children’s progress, and continuing towards development of an outdoor learning area.
