Authors Avatar by aisha_issaoutlookcom (student)


I feel like I was successfully able to meet my objectives and aims with high standards. My aim was to investigate how Alperton nursery meets the PIES needs of children. How the nursery follow up on development, how the children performance and how the nursery can keep children safe from harm.

The interviews lasted between seven and ten minutes. This was an expedient times for the interviews to last because it gave me the chance to note down clearly the nursery nurses responses to my questions and I was able to collect useful information to evaluate.
