A PLAYGROUP in West Pinchbeck is celebrating an “outstanding” Ofsted report.
The inspector who visited Ladybirds Pre-School Playgroup in March praised staff for providing exceptional levels of care for children.
Anna Davies said: “A small, highly skilled, motivated and extremely enthusiastic team provide a fully inclusive, welcoming service.
“Children are highly skilled communicators and display high levels of confidence. They enjoy lots of practical activities.
“Steps taken to safeguard children are exemplary and staff have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the procedures to follow if they have any concerns.”
Manager of the playgroup Ruth Hoyles-Simpson is thrilled with the report. She said: “We are delighted our hard work has been recognised.
“We have worked so hard over the last two years to achieve high standard of care and education.
“It is excellent that the school has been recognised for what it offers the community.”
The playgroup operates from a classroom in St Bartholomew’s Primary School in West Pinchbeck.
A charity, it caters for children from two to school age and there are 19 on the books.
