A NURSERY in Renfrewshire has been told it must make improvements after the quality of care and support it provided to children was graded unsatisfactory by inspectors.

It follows an unannounced inspection at Weans World nursery in Johnstone in September. 

An earlier inspection highlighted six requirements for improvement but when inspectors returned for the most recent inspection they found the nursery had not met any of these requirements fully within the timescales that had been set.  

In their latest report, inspectors noted: 'The provider was not ensuring that children had a good enough standard of care.  

'The provider needs to take prompt and significant action to make and sustain improvements to this service. 

'Overall, children have good relationships with staff. 

'However, the provider had recently moved some staff into different rooms. 

'This meant that in some instances, staff needed to do more to understand and respect children's individual needs and to develop responsive and nurturing relationships with the children in their care.'

A spokesperson for the Care Inspectorate said: “We have identified a number of areas which require improvement at this service and are monitoring the action the service is taking to address them. 

'We will carry out a further inspection at an appropriate time to ensure they take action to meet the standards we require. 

'Every child in Scotland has the right to safe, compassionate care which meets their needs and respects their rights. 

'Anyone with a concern about a care service can contact our helpline on 0345 600 9527.'
