A Suffolk nursery has been rated outstanding in all areas following its latest inspection.
The Moat Barn Nursery in Hasketon, near Woodbridge has been described by Ofsted inspectors as providing “the highest levels of care and learning for all children” following an inspection on August 17.
Inspectors gave the nursery the top mark across the board with everything from leadership to teaching quality and welfare being rated as outstanding.
Among the areas rated highly by Ofsted was the outdoor area for the children to play in.
“Children show the highest levels of engagement as they find out about the world around them,” said inspectors.
“For example, they explore the wooded area, investigate in the mud kitchen, search for mini-beasts and create willow necklaces.”
The advances made by youngsters is another of the areas in which Ofsted said the nursery had excelled describing progress as “rapid” and the monitoring of learning as “detailed and robust.”
