A PADGATE nursery received an unannounced visit from education regulators after they reported a child had ‘left the premises unsupervised’.

Inspectors were notified by Petals Children’s Day Nursery in June when the worrying incident had occurred.

On July 4, Ofsted was alerted to further concerns that the setting was not ‘meeting some of the requirements’.

An official report was published following the surprise visit, with Ofsted highlighting that children who attend are ‘observed to be happy and settled’.

“We found that key persons know their children well and interactions between staff and children were positive,” it read.

“We also found that staff-to-child ratios were met. However, we found that the provider was not meeting some of the requirements and had taken action to put this right.”

A risk assessment strategy has been put in place for the staff to follow to ‘ensure that children remain safe in the care of the nursery’.

The report concluded: “Staff deployment has been reviewed and revisited with all staff to ensure that children will usually be within sight and hearing of staff and always within sight or hearing.

“We are satisfied with the action taken.”
