Outstanding Ofsted report leaves Long Sutton Nursery staff thrilled

STAFF at a Fenland nursery, which only opened last year, are thrilled by outstanding Ofsted report that said they go the extra mile for their children.

Ofsted inspector Carly Mooney gave the top rating in all categories to the Phoenix Montessori Nursery, Long Sutton, when she arrived on June 28 found the children thriving in a “well organised and stimulating environment.”

Ms Mooney said: “The exceptionally strong and experienced management team ensure the setting offers outstanding levels of care and learning for every child.

“Children are busily engaged throughout the day and thoroughly motivated by the activities provided because they can make choices and initiate their own play.

“Children pin their own pictures to a low-level board to share with staff, parents and their peers, which gives them a true sense of belonging.”

Clare Harris, principal, said: “I am thrilled. The staff are very highly qualified and have worked extremely hard. They have now proved themselves to be truly outstanding.

“We are achieving what we set out to do, which is to provide the highest possible standard of care and education to our young charges to give them a flying start in life.”
