All performance standards and quality indicators were excellent. These encompassed the achievement of the children; teaching, learning and assessment; the curriculum; the safety of the children, the support they enjoy and leadership of the nursery."

"Support and guidance of children was excellent. Relationships between children and teachers were outstanding and created a highly positive climate for learning. Support for children with special educational needs was highly effective," inspectors said.
The private preschool has 85 students from the age of 18 months to 5 years.
