Hi Sarah, I had my inspection yesterday my first one since my pre-registration one and just wanted to say thank you for all your help and advice. I was awarded a good across all four areas. Thank you.
Excellent delivery and lots of great information. I have made loads of notes for things I am going to share with colleagues. Really inspired!
I am over the moon to finally announce that I got rated OUTSTANDING in my Ofsted inspection last week!!! Thank you so much Sarah Neville for the fantastic Facebook page (Independent Childminders) where I have gained so much information, ideas and resources (I told my inspector about you!!!) and all the childminding members!!! THANK YOU!
Hi Sarah. Mr Ofsted has left. A thorough 4.5 hours inspection! But I've got my hat trick!! Thank you SO much for all your hard work. Much of your advice and blogs have helped me no end. You ought to be as proud of my achievement as I am. Thank you!
Very pleased that I can officially say my Ofsted inspection is at last over!!! I have kept my 'outstanding', thank you Sarah Neville for all the information you give to us in training and online, it helped me so much!!
I just wanted to personally thank you for all the help you and the admin team do (Independent Childminders). I managed to keep my outstanding grade last week in my inspection for the 3rd time. I'm not an overly confident person but really put all my effort into making the children I care for happy in my setting which the inspector could obviously see. Thank you so much for your advice it has certainly helped me xx
