Inspectors were glowing in their praise of facilities, staff and children who attend The Nursery in Portishead.
The centre, which is in the High Street, only opened last year and has since excelled.
Ofsted has awarded it an ‘outstanding’ rating in all four of its criteria: leadership, teaching quality, behaviour and children’s progress.
Jackie Hardie said she was delighted by Ofsted’s findings.
The watchdog’s inspector Michelle Tuck said: “The leadership and management are inspirational.

“The highly-qualified and experienced managers provide highly effective direction to the staff.
“They regularly observe the quality of teaching, and provide accurate and purposeful feedback to staff, which helps staff to consistently improve their teaching skills and practice.”

Ofsted visited the nursery in mid-February and provided staff with one idea to improve the service yet further.
It recommends the nursery provides even more opportunities for children to learn about the outdoors.
