‘Excellent’ teaching lands Wisbech nursery an ‘outstanding’ verdict from Ofsted


Children, parents and staff at Wisbech Day Nursery are celebrating after being given an “outstanding” grade from Ofsted after their inspection in September this year.

The education regulator’s report found children attending the nursery “develop an enthusiasm for learning from a very young age” and that throughout the nursery “children relish in the excellent teaching demonstrated.”

Staff at the nursery were described as “exceptional,” and were also praised for “going the extra mile” in supporting families which “contributes to the children’s success” at nursery.

First Steps Childcare Day Nursery was labelled “outstanding” in all four sections of Ofsted’s report, which include quality of teaching and outcomes for children. The nursery has received an upgrade from its previous grading of “good,” which it received in its last inspection which took place in June 2011.

Nursery manager and Co-director Sarah Vick expressed her delight in the nursery’s performance.

“We are all extremely proud of this fantastic result - it makes all the hard work worth it,” she said.

“It’s great to have what we do recognised in this way”.
