We are so excited to have just received the IQM flagship school award. IQM is the inclusion quality mark and we are very proud of our commitment to being fully inclusive. The Flagship school award will enable us to share our practice with others. The IQM assessor wrote in her report that ‘Since the beginning of the pandemic, staff at Kay Rowe Nursery and Children’s Centre have been truly caring of their children, parents and each other, going the extra mile to help out during this difficult time.
This should be commended and recognised. The parent who spoke to me today couldn’t praise staff enough for the support he and his child had received since joining the nursery mid-lockdown. ‘They have been great through a very difficult time. Transition was brilliant and they took time and effort settling my child in. They were flexible and responsive, and understanding of what needed to happen especially in these times’.
