OFSTED say we are ‘Good’

Ofsted called to inspect our Nursery in February 2020 and they awarded us a rating of ‘Good’.

Day nurseries follow the same syllabus as nursery schools, but the ratio of staff to children is much higher in day nurseries at 1 staff member to 8 children.

Since being rated Oustanding as of 2014, the criteria for this rating has become much stricter.
