AN East Renfrewshire nursery has received a glowing inspection report. 

Cross Arthurlie Nursery in Barrhead was visited by an inspector from the Care Inspectorate on Thursday, February 2.

They spoke with children using the service, sent out family questionnaires (which received two responses), spoke with staff and management, observed practice and daily life, and reviewed documents to make their evaluations.

Publishing their findings, the Care Inspectorate highlighted several key strengths of the nursery. 

These include that children were receiving nurturing care and support from staff who were "kind, caring and responsible to their needs".

Meanwhile, communication with families was "very good" which helped support them to be involved in their child's care, while children participated in "quality play experiences which supported them to progress their learning".

The report also said that youngsters' health and well-being was prompted by daily access to the outdoors and staff were committed to their roles and keen to help improve the outcomes for children and families. 

There have been no complaints upheld at the nursery either since its previous inspection report.

An East Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “It’s extremely pleasing to see the excellent work which goes on every day in Cross Arthurlie Nursery being recognised in this positive care inspectorate report.

"The staff, children, parents and wider community connected to the nursery work hard to enrich the learning experiences of all the children who attend and deserve great credit for these results.”
