Information about the setting

Cotton Tails Day Nursery Northefield is one of three nurseries run by Cotton Tails Nurseries Limited. It opened in 1997 and is registered on the Early Years Register and on the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. It operates from a converted house situated in the Northfield area of Birmingham. The nursery serves the immediate and wider locality. The nursery opens five days a week from 7.30am to 6pm all year round, except for bank holidays. Children attend for a variety of sessions. Children are cared for in five rooms and have access to an enclosed outdoor play area. There are currently 113 children on roll in the early years age group. The nursery receives funding for the provision of free early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. The nursery supports children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. There are currently 19 staff working directly with the children, all of whom have appropriate early years qualifications. One member of staff has a qualification at level 4, and 17 have a qualification at level 3. One member of staff has a qualification at level 2. The nursery 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 further ways of using routine activities, such as mealtimes, to more consistently extend the understanding of children aged two- to three-years about the benefits of healthy eating.
