A nursery found to be compromising children’s health with dirty equipment and unhealthy food has improved its practices, inspectors have found.

Ofsted said Susan Fisher, manager of Rainbow Kids Nursery in Malmesbury Road, South Woodford. had put appropriate measures in place to deal with the problems.

A report published in July also found staff at the nursery, which looks after 36 children aged three months to eight, failed to provide adequate supervision and lacked the skills to manage behaviour.

They also had limited understanding of the nursery's safeguarding policies and procedures.

However, a new report published today said there had been progress.

It said: “The local authority advisor expressed confidence in the manager's ability to improve practice and stated she could already see that improvements have taken place.

 “The deployment of staff was reviewed to ensure there is always enough staff present to make sure the ratios of staff to children is always met.

“The manager informed the inspector that she has reviewed the behaviour management policy and staff have been provided with a copy to read and sign to acknowledge they have understood this policy.

“The manager informed the inspector that she has reviewed the cleaning routines of the nursery and has implemented a weekly cleaning schedule for the cleaner to follow.”
