We’ve only gone and done it again…celebrating a ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted hat-trick!

We are delighted to announce that we have been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for the third time in a row! Our nursery in Blackrod, has been deemed “outstanding in all areas” by the education watchdog and we could not be any prouder!

The report praised us across every area with our “inspirational leadership”, “very high quality teaching” and “exciting learning environments” all receiving special mention. Even more pleasing was the inspector’s observation that Children are extremely happy, motivated and utterly engaged in learning.”

We would like to say big thank you to all our parents!

We could not have achieved this ‘outstanding’ result without the overwhelming support of our parents and carers and the report reflects this. The report highlighted the ‘exceptional’ partnership between parents and families as well as the strong links the nursery has with the larger community.

Playdays, Blackrod Nursery Manager, Kristina Bannister said :

“To receive three ‘Outstanding’ ratings on the trot is an amazing achievement. I’m incredibly proud of the Playdays team, who work tirelessly to provide exceptional care and education for our children every day.

“The high praise we have received from Ofsted reflects all of the passion and hard work we put into our nursery and the fabulous relationships we have with the families we support. It really is wonderful to have this recognised.”
