Information about the setting
Catherine House Day Nursery registered in 1993. It is one of a group of six private nurseries located around the country. The nursery operates from a large house in a residential area of Northfield, Birmingham, which is close to shops, schools, children’s centres and public transport links. The main house accommodates children aged under three years and a separate building, the Coach House, is used by pre-school children. It is registered on the Early Years Register and the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. The nursery serves the local area and is accessible to all children. It opens on Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6pm, all year round, with the exception of bank holidays. There is an enclosed area available for outdoor play. The nursery employs eight members of childcare staff. Of these, all but one hold appropriate early years qualifications to at least level 3. Two members of staff hold Early Years Professional Status. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently 56 children attending, who are within the early years age group. The nursery provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. It supports a number of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and receives support from the local authority. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: consider enhancing older children’s excellent awareness of caring for the environment through extending their learning about recycling and how they practise this at nursery and at home.
