The inspector felt that “children are happy, confident and secure in this warm and welcoming pre-school” and observed that “children are attaining a good level of development and are well prepared for their move on to school”.
The pre-school’s manager, Angela Hodgkinson, said: “Our staff have worked very hard in the two and a half years since Ofsted last visited and they fully deserve the good rating.
“As the inspector said, we really do strive to make learning as enjoyable and stimulating as possible.”
Abacus Pre-School is based at the Sports Club on Regatta Way between Lady Bay and Gamston and opens from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Children are welcome from 20 months until they start school.
