ANGER towards Oftsed in the region is growing after a second nursery announced it was joining a national campaign against the body.
Bosses at The Honey Pots Day Nursery, in Swadlincote, have met with officials form the Pre-school Learning Alliance and the National Day Nursery Association having lost confidence in the way Ofsted handles inspections.
The Newhall Road nursery has joined neighbouring Chuckle Bunnies in making its protestations known.
Management at The Honey Pots were stung by it latest inspection which downgraded it from ‘good’ to ‘satisfactory’, while also claiming that children were left in discomfort as nappies weren’t changed often enough.
Sharon Redfern, managing director, refuted the claims and said the report was unfair.
She said: “There is stuff that parents don’t necessarily know about. They have almost always got to find something. But this is giving us a bit of a voice, we are doing a good job.
“It is our reputation - this is my livelihood and it means the world to me.”
Bosses at the Chuckle Bunnies made their intentions clear following their own report which was deemed ‘contradictory’.
Oftsed said it ‘takes concerns seriously’ and would investigate any issues ‘thoroughly’.
