Juice Nursery Altrincham awarded Ofsted Outstanding

On 04, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In Blog | By Matt


Juice Nursery, Altrincham was recently awarded Outstanding by Ofsted. I was asked to provide an image to mark the occasion.

Founded by a former midwife, with a simple but focused goal of providing outstanding childcare in a loving and nurturing environment, Juice is now owned and run by parent, Mike Leary, together with Nursery Manager, Lesley Wilson.

Juice has gone from strength to strength since its doors opened in September 2007, however our goal and ethos steadfastly remains the same.  In running the nursery, our overriding principles are:

• For Juice to be a ‘home from home’
• To listen and respond to local parent’s needs
• To ensure the highest possible qualities in staff, and
• To have a focus on health, nutrition and learning through play.

They believe that Juice MUST feel like a home from home. Whilst nurseries are required to work within the guidelines set by the EYFS, it is paramount that we do not forget what a huge responsibility it is to look after another person’s child and it is vital that the children not only feel safe, secure and happy, but that they are excited to come to nursery and that their parents see their attendance as a positive and valuable part of their growing up.

This philosophy has developed in a number of ways, such as:

The introduction of Stretch-n-Grow, Music and French classes for variety
A focus on outdoor play, with the introduction of our new Mud Kitchen, as well as regular trips to the local parks & town centre
The introduction of our award-winning, interactive sensory room
Building strong working relationships with outside disciplines such as speech therapists and physiotherapists to help support children’s needs
Getting involved in community events

In addition, Juice has become well known for being hugely supportive of children with additional needs, with staff being trained to exceptionally high standards to cope with the additional requirements.

Parents can follow all of their child’s milestones via our fabulous new electronic technology ( ORBIT ) keeping them connected with us and their children.
