Ofsted reports

Following our last Ofsted inspection in February 2013, the nursery achieved the highest possible accolade, being judged outstanding in every single category for the third time. This rating is only given to settings whom Ofsted judge to be of exceptionally high quality in all areas of care and education. We have maintained this rating consistently since it was first introduced.
