Youngsters and staff at Little Treasures Nursery, Pinchbeck, have received a pirate’s chest of good news from Ofsted after a recent inspection.

The nursery in Knight Street was rated good in all areas, meeting the needs of children, contributing to their well-being and delivering effective leadership and management.

Ofsted inspector Michelle Morley praised staff for allowing children to “learn through their own interests,” catering for those special needs and disabilities, supporting children whose first language isn’t English and creating an “enabling, well-resourced environment.”

She also recommended that a “wide range of resources” should be provided in outdoor learning areas to improve children’s drawing and writing skills, as well as better monitoring of staff’s development and evaluation.

Manager Allison Newns said: “Obviously, we’re really pleased with the report because the staff have worked very hard and our parents are pleased as well.

“We’ve already addressed the issues brought up by the Ofsted inspector, our staff evaluation system is up and running and we just want to progress and do the best for our children and parents.
