A NURSERY given Ofsted's worst grade after a child went missing has now been judged to be "good". Selhurst Children's Centre was rated "inadequate" in a report published in January after a child was able to leave the building unnoticed. In its first full inspection since then, Ofsted found major progress had been made. "Since the last inspection, staff have made significant improvements to the security and safety of the nursery," said a report published this week. "They make sure the premises are secure at all times and they monitor any visitors. "They supervise the entrance to the nursery carefully as children arrive and leave and make sure they know who is on the premises. "Staff make daily checks of the nursery and garden to ensure children can play safely. "They make sure that enough staff are present both inside and outdoors and supervise the children closely." Inspector Rebecca Khabbazi said the nursery's 126 children benefit from a "welcoming inclusive setting" and had access to "a wide range of good quality resources and play materials". She also praised the level of teaching and highlighted support given to children with special educational needs. Ms Khabbazi said staff need to ensure books are organised more effectively, and that they do more to support children for whom English is not their first language, if the children's centre is to be judged "outstanding" in the future.
