Jolly Tots receive A* in Social Workers Inspection Report.

It always a time of nervous anticipation when you are waiting for your exam results isn’t it? But now it’s time to celebrate for Jolly Tots who received a exceptional Inspection report from Senior Social Worker Mary Bond who commented:

“During the inspection I observed staff consistently responding to children in a very warm and affirmative manner and there was real evidence of staff understanding and valuing the individuality of each child…I had a sense of this being a very positive environment for staff to work in and for children to be cared in… I have noted the positive energy which goes into working to continually improve quality in the provision. The management and staff in this nursery have achieved very high standards of child care provision. Well done to all involved.”

Helen Canning, Nursery Manager was naturally delighted with such a glowing inspection report which is available for parents to see and commented;

“This exceptionally positive inspection report is testimony to all the staff at Jolly Tots whose commitment to provide the best possible child care is second to none. Thanks to all the team for their efforts and support to achieving this result.”

Jolly Tots Rory Ready as Always to Head off on An Adventure

My name is Rory and I live at Jolly Tots Antrim – well most of the time but quite often Helen, the Manager lets me go to a sleep over with one of children who come to see me during the week.

It’s great fun when the children take me home to their house as I am so excited to see what fun things we can get up to together. I always bring with me my face cloth, toothbrush, pyjamas and my favourite storybook. I also bring with me a note book for the children’s mummy or daddy to write about what exciting things we have done together as I’m too small to write yet. We always get our photo taken together when we get back to Jolly Tots and I tell all the other children about my adventures- I love living at Jolly Tots Antrim where it’s Hands Up for Happy Kids.

Better dash as I need to pack for another adventure. See you soon…
