Dear Parent's and Carers,
We are very please to announce that we have now been graded by OFSTED as 'Outstanding'.
Ofsted is the Government body that assesses the performance of day nurseries across the UK. They have a team of inspectors who visit all nursery schools every two to four years. In the case of nursery schools, inspections are unannounced, which means we must keep up our childcare standards all the time to be sure of maintaining our status. Inspections are based on the (EYFS) framework, which sets the standards for learning, development and care of children from birth to five years old.
At the end of each inspection, the inspector issues an "Early Years Register Inspection Report". This details a nursery's performance for different aspects, which you can see listed below.
The inspection judgements fall into four grades:
1. Outstanding: this aspect of the provision is of exceptionally high quality
2. Good: this aspect of the provision is strong
3. Requires improvement: this aspect of the provision is requires improvement
4. Inadequate: this aspect of the provision is not acceptable
We were rated 'outstanding' in all areas of the inspection. This is a great achievement for us and we thank all parents and carers for the support you have all given us. Many parents described the nursery 'as a place where their children play very happily and make constant progress'. The inspectors were delighted with the children's emotional wellbeing and their many skills as well as were captivated by our 'highly motivated and talented' staff.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank everyone who has made this possible.
