Youngsters and staff at a pre-school formed in the same year as the Queen’s Silver Jubilee can celebrate Easter with a spring from Ofsted.

Jubilee Pre-School in Gedney Hill has been rated good in all areas after an inspection this month at the Memorial Hall where six staff and more than 20 children take part in a range of educational activities.

In her report, Ofsted inspector Carly Mooney praised the pre-school for motivating its children to learn, promoting independence and developing their imagination through play.

Staff were highlighted for their support of children with special needs and their families, allowing them to reach their “full potential” while at the pre-school.

But the inspector also expressed concern over the limited opportunities parents had to contribute to their children’s learning, an area staff are already working on by monitoring their youngsters’ progress at home.

Adrian Stuart, the pre-school’s chairman, said: “This report reflects all the hard work of the staff who have all worked together really well to get the good grade they deserved.

“Our staff are working to give the children the best start in life and towards getting an outstanding Ofsted rating hopefully.”

An extract from the report about the pre-school said: “Children are happy, motivated and eager to learn in what is a stimulating environment.”
