A nursery in Long Buckby has been judged to be outstanding following a report made by a Government inspection.
Clarecroft Day Nursery in the High Street was given the award by Ofsted. It is a result which has left the staff at the nursery delighted.
Natasha Obee, manager of the nursery, said: “We are really pleased with the judgement. The staff work so hard.
“The outstanding rating that we have been given is a recognition of all of the work the staff have put in. For all of my staff, they do not see it as just another job, it becomes a big part of their life,” she added.
“I had a meeting with the Ofsted inspector to find out what we were going to get, and all of the staff pounced on me as soon as I got out of the door.
“They were all thrilled that we have been judged as outstanding. There has been a real buzz around the place over the last few days after we were told what the result was.
“We were previously judged to be good with outstanding elements, so this is a massive improvement.”
The Ofsted inspector in particular commented on the quality of the teaching being exceptional, with the staff knowing exactly where the children are in their learning journey and where they need to go next.
She also paid tribute to the community for the result.
Miss Obee said: “It is a big achievement, there are not many nurseries in the county which are judged oustanding and a lot of that is because of the parents and what they contribute.”
