Care Inspectorate Report

“A nursery in Perth has been praised by inspectors after scoring top marks across the board in two consecutive inspections. Paint Pots nursery in the city was graded excellent across the board for the second inspection in a row following an unannounced visit.” 

A report of the most recent inspection noted: “The children attending this safe, nurturing, inclusive environment were ably supported by staff who effectively contributed to the promotion of positive outcomes for children. “Children were seen to be very happy with the wide range of stimulating activities and quality resources both indoors and in the garden which formed an ideal basis for a rich, fun learning environment.” 

Inspectors added: “The service maintains a high level of person centred care through positive interaction from staff who know the families well and have a keen interest in providing the best possible outcomes for the children.”

Education Scotland Report

“The setting is led by a committed manager who is developing the leadership skills of most practitioners within the setting. This supports ongoing development of aspects of the service. For example, the development and implementation of a science programme, the Eco Schools work and loose parts play. Practitioners engage with these leadership roles enthusiastically. There is scope to increase children’s leadership responsibilities to ensure they undertake the role they are capable of in the leadership of change within the setting.”

“A key feature of the setting is the very positive and nurturing relationships evident across the playrooms. Children are valued and respected. They are observed to be very confident, articulate and motivated to learn. They enjoy taking on responsibilities for aspects of the playroom such as tidying areas. Within the environment there is potential for children to take on even more responsibility, for example, making even more independent choices about their learning. This should include increased free-flow access to learning outdoors.”

“Learning environments are attractive and stimulating. They are furnished with high quality resources. Considerable thought has been put into the development of spaces including the outdoor areas.”

“Literacy, numeracy and health and well-being are strong features of the curriculum. Everyone is involved in the delivery of learning in these important curriculum areas with identified practitioners planning detailed annual programmes to ensure all aspects are delivered to children. Care should be taken to ensure that this consistently meets the needs of all children over time, including appropriate cognisance of curriculum design principles. It would be useful for practitioners to have an increased awareness of the National Benchmarks to ensure they have an awareness of the early level of Curriculum for Excellence as a full three year programme.”
