Knossington and Somerby Pre-school are celebrating after being awarded an ‘outstanding’ rating at their most recent inspection; improving on their last result of ‘good’ in April 2011.
Adelaide Griffith, the Ofsted inspector who visited the pre-school, said: “The pre-school has an ethos of promoting learning beyond the pre-school setting. Staff plan frequent outings so that children extend their understanding of the community in which they live. They visit working farms and learn about the natural environment and animal life.”
Sue Bichard, leader of Knossington and Somerby Pre-school, said: “We’re delighted that Ofsted have recognised our pre-school as ‘outstanding’. We believe that we provide outstanding childcare and education in a friendly, family environment offering children the best start in life and preparing them for school as happy and confident individuals.”
