An Aberdeen nursery has been told it must continue to make significant improvements after an inspection graded it “unsatisfactory” for the quality of care and support provided to children.

The Care Inspectorate’s latest inspection of All Stars Nursery found that ten requirements for improvement made in an earlier inspection had not been met.

It is the second inspection in a row where the quality of care and support provided to children was found to be “unsatisfactory.”

However, inspectors noted that a formal Improvement Notice served on the service following an earlier inspection, requiring urgent improvements, had been met.

Scotland’s social care scrutiny and improvement body has now told the nursery that they must show further evidence of significant improvement.

In their most recent report, inspectors noted: “Since the last inspection was completed on 20 August 2014, the service has made some improvement to the care of the children. This improvement made must be maintained and continued to ensure children receive adequate care.

“The provider and staff must focus on the quality of their interactions with the children. The involvement of the parents should be respected and encouraged. The quality of the resources, furnishings and environment must continue to be upgraded, kept clean, safe and organised. The service must meet the conditions of registration at all times.

“These are the prioritised areas for improvement at present because of their impact on the children's health, well-being and safety.” 

A spokesperson for the Care Inspectorate said: “Every child in Scotland has the right to safe, compassionate care which meets their needs and respects their rights.

“We remain committed to working with this service to ensure it meets the standards we require, but if we do not see further evidence of significant, urgent improvement, we will not hesitate to take further action.

“We will be inspecting again soon to check on progress.”
