YMCA Hampton Pre School rated Good by Ofsted

Community news on behalf of YMCA St Paul's Group | 2 October 2023

YMCA Hampton Pre School, part of YMCA St Paul’s Group, has been rated Good by Ofsted following a recent inspection.

The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) has awarded YMCA Hampton Pre School in Hampton a Good rating for their early years provision. The rating follows an inspection by Ofsted in September 2023. 

Ofsted’s report praises the warm and welcoming environment which helps the children to feel safe and secure. It remarks on the children’s enjoyment of a wide range of stimulating and age-appropriate toys that capture their curiosity. 

The inspectors’ report also highlighted further strengths, including the experienced staff who can quickly identify any gaps or needs in children’s progress and put appropriate support in place. As a result, all children, including children who are disadvantaged and in receipt of early education funding, make good progress. 

The report describes how the children are encouraged to be confident and independent, and how good behaviour and choices are positively reinforced. The children are performing well in improving their communication skills and extending their vocabularies, as well as being encouraged to develop their fine and gross motor skills. 

Kristina Lastoweckyi, Head of Children, Youth & Family Work at YMCA St Paul’s Group, said: “We are delighted at the positive Ofsted report that recognises the quality of care we provide at our Pre School. It’s a great testament to the expertise and teamwork of our staff who create such a stimulating and nurturing environment for the children in our care.” 

Georgia Fransella, YMCA Hampton Pre School Manager, commented: “The Good rating is a fantastic reflection of the quality of care and learning at our Pre School - helping children to foster independence, resilience, creativity, and curiosity. 

"We recognise that there is always more to do and are ambitious for the future. We are committed to delivering the very best provision for early years care.”
