The Learning Tree nursery in Blackpool has been rated ‘outstanding’ after a recent Ofsted inspection.
The inspector who visited the nursery, Jacqueline Midgley, said in her report: “The quality of teaching is excellent as staff provide rich, varied and imaginative experiences based on children’s interests and learning styles. As a result, children are highly motivated, eager to learn, and develop a thirst for learning.”
Ms Midgley also said in her report that each child in the nursery was ‘respected and valued’ by staff and that the staff themselves were ‘innovative and passionate.’
She also added that: “Children are confident and motivated because their emotional well-being is very well promoted. Staff skilfully introduce maths and literacy throughout play and children begin to develop excellent reading and writing and critical thinking skills.”
Manager of The Learning Tree, Kay Townsend, said: “It feels like winning the lottery and is recognition of the enormity of work, passion and dedication the entire staff and management team place into running a successful nursery.”
