5 Tips for Preparing for Nursery School Inspections

What do you need to prepare for inspections? When planning to work with a team or with an advisor, trust is important. We tend to do business with people who are trustworthy. Within a team, optimal outcomes are created when trust is established between members.

If you are a nursery manager or supervisor leading a team through the process of inspections, you will need to build trust, showing your team that you know what you are doing and how you will succeed.

For anyone new to this blog, I hope I will begin to build trust in my company (Professional Minds) that has a proven record of success in the UAE, Singapore, Eswatini, Kenya, Oman, Kuwait and other countries.

Back to the main question:

How Do I Prepare for Nursery School Inspections?

As a nursery owner or manager, preparing for inspections can be a difficult and overwhelming task. 

It can lead to sleepless nights if you have not prepared for an inspection before! I know, because I experienced this years ago. You are not alone. 

Some questions about inspections from previous clients in Dubai schools have been:

  1. Where do I start?

  2. How do I make sure the teachers are prepared?

  3. Can you help me with organising documents?

  4. Will you visit and observe my nursery and tell me what is missing? 

Organisational Structure

In answer to the question above - ‘How Do I Prepare for Nursery School Inspections?” - ONE of the answers is linked to your organisational systems and structure.

Here are five (5) recommended systems that should be ready and updated:

  1. Complete a current staff list (with qualifications) - incorporate ALL staff.

  2. Licensing requirements - make sure that all your systems comply with the educational licensing authority’s regulations. No shortcuts.

  3. Professional Development of Staff - make sure your staff have access to current best practices relevant to your curriculum. Maintain records.

  4. Policies and procedures - are all of your policies in place and are staff aware of how to implement key policies? 

  5. Lesson Plans - should be consistent, clear and aligned with your chosen curriculum.

Successful Inspections

I am an expert in early childhood education and development, with extensive experience in preparing successfully for inspections.

As the founding head of Raffles International School Kindergarten (Dubai), I got used to preparing documentation, coaching staff and meeting with key stakeholders to prepare for inspections. The preschool under my leadership was rated outstanding for three years in a row.

I mention this for you to have a clear understanding that I am not talking from a place of theory, but of practice.
