Keep Guard Day Nursery practice is underpinned by policies and procedures which meet the safeguarding and welfare requirements and are available in a policy document in the main reception area. Ofsted said ‘Children's welfare is well promoted because safeguarding arrangements are thorough’.  


We are registered by Ofsted under The Children Act 1989 and are inspected regularly. At our last inspection Ofsted said ‘Children are motivated and enthusiastic learners. Given their starting points, they make good progress. When the time comes, they are ready for school. They are able to identify the letters in their names and can work out simple mathematical problems. Staff accurately gather information to identify children’s next steps in learning. They use this in conjunction with their knowledge of children’s interests to help extend children’s knowledge through planned activities and their self-chosen play. Key Person relationships are strong. Staff know children and their families well.’
