Nursery at Bell’s Brae praised by inspectors

The Bell’s Brae nursery department has become the latest educational establishment in the isles to receive a glowing report from inspectors.

Jenny Smith of the Care Inspectorate made an unannounced visit to the two classes last month and has awarded the nursery two excellents and two very goods for quality of care and support and quality of staff.

In a letter to parents Bell’s Brae depute head Melvyn Clark said: “I would like to highlight that in the report nursery staff are recognised as a particular strength of the service. They truly deserve this recognition …”

In her report the inspector says: “Bell’s Brae Nursery provides a warm, caring and safe area for the young children who attend. They provide a stimulating environment where children can learn through their play.”

Last month the Anderson High School was praised by inspectors for the quality of its education provision.
