We are aware of the concerns around our inspection of Town and Country Kiddies Nursery, and have taken the report down from our website while we look into the matter.

All early years providers must follow the statutory guidance as directed by the Department for Education, which includes “guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment”.

The guidance goes on to state that children should “know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions”.

Inspectors have a duty to follow these guidelines during every inspection and will naturally reference them in their reports.
