Cayman Brac Daycare Centre Scores ‘Good’ Rating by Education Inspectors

The Ministry of District Administration and Lands announces that the Cayman Brac Daycare Centre has achieved a score rating of a “Good Early Years Centre” by the Office of Education Standards (OES) for February 2023 Cycle 2. Good is the second highest performance rating that a school can achieve in an OES inspection.

Minister responsible for District Administration and Education, Hon, Juliana O’Connor Connolly expressed, “Inspection frameworks are a central feature of different school evaluation systems worldwide which is important as we aim to position the Cayman Islands in the global economy.  The inspection framework is organised around judgements using a four-point scale weak, satisfactory, good and excellent. While we strive for excellence in our schools, Good is the expected level for every school in the Cayman Islands, both public and private. I am particularly pleased about the improvement of this rating in a short period of time. It tells me that the systems and provisions are prioritizing and serving the needs of our people. That is what it is all about, that is the core principle of the work we do.”

The Department of District Administration hosted an event in Cayman Brac to officially unveil a new building sign that conveys the ‘Good’ rating. The event was attended by Government officials, school staff, students and members of the community in celebration of the achievement.

District Commissioner, B.L. Mark Tibbetts who served as the Master of Ceremony expressed, “We are absolutely excited to celebrate the work of the staff and students of the Cayman Brac Day Care Centre, the District Administration team and of course the parents and guardians for their collaborative efforts which have resulted in the achievement of a Good rating from the Office of Education Standards. Following the 2020 OES inspection the Centre received a satisfactory judgement.  The team took the judgement of a “Satisfactory” rating seriously, and went about assiduously working toward meeting the expectations. This required some self-evaluation of our weaknesses, and the implementation of training for staff to provide them with the skills needed to improve the Centre’s operations, and strengthen teaching and learning. ”

All educational institutions are inspected regularly by the Office of Education Standards. The purpose of inspection is primarily to support ongoing improvement in each school and also to provide rigorous, impartial and comprehensive information to all stakeholders regarding the quality of education both in government and private educational establishments.

In the Early Years Inspection Report, the Cayman Brac Day Care Centre under the management of Mrs. Neila Jones, received a judgement of “Good” in all three indicators towards ensuring effective teaching to support our student’s learning. These three indicators are teaching, learning, and assessment. They also scored “Good” for Curriculum and for keeping students safe and always supported.
