A pre-school has been hailed as ‘outstanding’ after an Ofsted inspection.
Knossington and Somerby Pre-school, which operates in Knossington Village Hall, was graded ‘outstanding’ in all aspects of the report – improving its overall rating from good following its last inspection in April 2011.
Inspector Adelaide Griffith said: “The pre-school has an ethos of promoting learning beyond the pre-school setting. Staff plan frequent outings so that children extend their understanding of the community in which they live. They visit working farms and learn about the natural environment and animal life.”
Pre-school leader Sue Bichard said: “We believe that we provide outstanding childcare and education in a friendly, family environment offering children the best start in life and preparing them for school as happy and confident individuals.
“We’re delighted that Ofsted have recognised our pre-school as ‘outstanding’.”
