Information about the setting

UNITOTS - University of Worcester was registered in 1992 and is on the Early Years Register. It is situated on the University of Worcester campus, and is owned and managed by the university. The nursery serves university staff and students and the wider community. It is accessible to all children and operates from several ground floor rooms and has three enclosed areas available for outdoor play. The nursery employs 13 members of childcare staff who all hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 3, including two with Early Years Professional status and three with Qualified Teacher Status. The nursery opens Monday to Friday for 50 weeks a year, from 8am until 6pm. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently 47 children attending who are in the early years age group. The nursery provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. It supports children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: consider the use of peer observations to enable all staff to share, reflect and build on each other’s practice and to continue the already excellent professional development.
