Information about the setting

New Road Nursery first opened in 1992 and was re-registered by the current owners in March 2006. The nursery is based in two converted houses and is located in the centre of Chippenham, Wiltshire. It is registered on the Early Years Register and both the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. The nursery serves the local community and is open all year. It opens each weekday from 8am to 6pm. There are currently 150 children on roll of whom 52 are in the early years age range. The nursery is in receipt of government funding for nursery education. The nursery welcomes children with special needs and/or disabilities, and also those who speak English as an additional language. Due to the many steps in the nursery, access for wheelchair users could be difficult. Children are cared for in age related groups, each with their own base playroom. There are also sleep rooms, nappy changing and toilet facilities. The nursery has a large garden available for children of all ages to use. The local park is also used frequently. There are 24 members of staff, 18 hold relevant childcare qualifications at level 3 or above. An early years professional is employed in addition to a qualified teacher. The setting receives local authority teacher support. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: enhance the outdoor resources so they are inviting and attractive for the children’s use.
