Staff at a Clevedon preschool have dedicated its latest Ofsted report to its founder after she died this month.
Roundabouts Preschool in Southey Road was set up by Clevedon resident Edith Jones in 1968 and, following her death, staff have said the service’s latest good rating is down to her hard work.
Sam Perry, manager, said: “Without Edith, Roundabouts would not be here today in our lovely purpose-built building.
“Edith did so much for the children and families of Clevedon and I am proud to be following in her footsteps.”
The report, which was written following an inspection on June 19, highlights the ‘stimulating’ indoor and outdoor environments and praises staff’s knowledge of how children learn and the care they take of the people in their care.
