Little Jesters is registered with and regularly inspected by Ofsted.

We also receive support and guidance from the Early Years and Childcare support service which contributes to the Partnership’s overall planning to provide education and care throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our last full Ofsted inspection was September 2017 which we were awarded ‘Good’.

The inspector comments were:

Staff make accurate assessments of the children’s achievements and use this information to plan challenging activities for each child. Children make good progress in their development.

• Staff meet the needs of children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Additional support is put in place quickly to ensure all the children make consistently good progress.


• Children are well prepared for their move on to school. For example, staff take children to the host school on a Friday to choose their snack from a tuck shop. Children confidently and independently pay for their snacks.


• Information about children’s achievements is shared effectively with the host school when children move on in order to promote continuity of the care and learning. Staff sit with children in the school hall when they eat their lunch with the school-aged children. Children learn the routine of the school day effectively.
