ITERS...

Ashton House Nursery has an exceptionally high Infant Toddler Environment Rating.

The Infant Toddler Environment Rating Scale (ITERS) is a quality assessment tool that is being used by the government to assess the quality of childcare provision. Ashton House Nursery has been assessed (July 2015) for our two to three year olds (our Grasshopper rooms) as we offer some funded places for families of this age range.

ITERS is comprised of a 39-item rating scale that is organised into 7 environmental subscales. The 7 subscales consist of Space and Furnishings, Personal Care Routines, Listening and Talking, Activities, Interaction, Programme Structure and Parents and Staff.

The vast majority of the assessment is spent observing, therefore an in-depth assessment of the quality of practice is obtained. We are very pleased to have achieved an exceptionally high rating across all areas, which reflects the commitment of the Grasshopper team and Management to maintain the highest standards and continue to improve the provision for children.

ITERS fully supports the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and fits with our Reggio Emilia inspired approach to childcare.
