Information about the setting

Daisy Chain Day Nursery opened in 1994 and is registered on the Early Years Register and on the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. It is privately owned and managed, and operates from an annexe of Norton Community Centre in Stourbridge, West Midlands. The nursery serves the immediate locality and also the surrounding areas. It opens five days a week from 7.30am until 6pm all year round except for bank holidays and one week at Christmas. Children attend for a variety of sessions. Children are cared for in five rooms and have access to two enclosed outdoor play areas. There are currently 156 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. It supports children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and children for whom English is an additional language. The nursery adopts the Reggio Emilia approach and the Forest Schools ethos in their work with the children. There are currently 32 staff working directly with the children. Of these, two members of staff have qualifications at level 6 and 15 have qualifications at level 3. Five members of staff have qualifications at level 2 and nine are unqualified. Some senior staff also hold qualifications in Forest School leadership. 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: sharpen the focus on helping children aged two years to learn more about the reasons for eating healthily.
