A nursery in Kilburn has been commended for improving standards following a string of damning reports by Ofsted inspectors.
Seahorses Day Nursery (SDN), in Albert Road, is still graded inadequate but the education watchdog acknowledged that steps have been taken to address issues in early year provisions identified in previous reports.
In an update reported published on Wednesday it noted that small stones and broken equipment in the outdoor children’s’ play area which posed a choking hazard had now been removed, and a playhouse that had been installed without safety surfaces to cushion children if they were to fall has been reduced in height to make it safer for babies to use.
Other notable improvements includes staff having greater knowledge of children safeguarding policy and the nursery introducing better behaviour management strategies and more support for special education needs.
The report also noted that the number of children in attendance were low during the most recent visit.

The next step will be a full inspection.

Tosin Amuludun, who owns the nursery, told the Times she bought the business a year ago when it was in a bad condition and she is tackling any issues.
She added: “We will continue to improve the standards of our nursery.
“We will like to work in partnership with the local community to help to support us.”
