Casterton Nursery, in Great Casterton, rated 'good' by Ofsted
A village nursery has received a ‘good’ rating following its latest Ofsted inspection.
Casterton Nursery was rated good in all four key areas of quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management in a report published last week.
The nursery, based at Casterton Business College in Great Casterton, had 71 children on its role aged five and below at the time of the March inspection.
The report, published last week, said the children 'love coming to nursery' and built 'close relationships with all staff' while staff had created a 'welcoming environment'.
It said: "Staff's interactions with children show they have a deep understanding of how children learn.
"Staff make the most of planned and spontaneous opportunities that children may not experience elsewhere."
The report went on to say: "Staff are ambitious in what they want all children to learn, including children who may need additional support."
The inspection also found safeguarding arrangements to be effective.
“The staff team work extremely hard to provide a caring and stimulating environment in which children can thrive,” said nursery manager Jo Ward.
“We are pleased the inspector picked up on this.
"We are also thrilled to see that we do not have any teaching and learning recommendations, suggesting that the education we provide our youngest children is the very best it can be."
