A pre-school has been hailed as outstanding after an Ofsted inspection.
Asfordby Pre-school, which operates from Asfordby Captains Close Primary School, was graded outstanding in all aspects. Inspector Julie Dale commented: “The inspirational manager and practitioners have a very secure knowledge of children’s development and an excellent understanding of how children learn through their play. Practitioners have high expectations of themselves and the children and provide a wealth of challenging and imaginative play and learning experiences.”
She added: “A calm and caring atmosphere creates a positive learning environment for all where children are highly valued as individuals. Parents acknowledge and appreciate the warm welcome and ongoing support they receive.
Pre-school manager Kim Price said: “We are committed and passionate about providing an exceptional service and we all work incredibly hard to maintain an exemplary setting. Early years settings have no warning that they are to be inspected so celebrating Ofsted’s recognition of our outstanding qualities is something we’re all very proud of.
