‘Outstanding’ teaching is offered at a nursery in Portishead, according to Ofsted inspectors.
The education watchdog surveyed teaching standards at Stationhouse Nursery at the end of October and has now published its report and believes improvements have been made.
Back in 2013, the nursery was rated as good but three years on is seen as outstanding across the board, including in terms of leadership and looking after children’s welfare.
Nusery owner Zoe Parsons said: “I am absolutely dedicated to provide the best standard of child care and education and having both Stationhouse and Lakehouse rated outstanding is a great achievement and is absolutely down to the passion and commitment of my team.
“That said, we will continue to innovate, educate and improve so that children thrive in our care and parents continue to feel proud of their childcare choice.”
Ofsted praised the nursery’s staff for being ‘extremely nurturing and caring’.
And the quality of nutritious food offered to the children also was praised.
