Our first OFSTED Report – Outstanding!

We’re delighted to have achieved Ofsted’s highest grade of ‘Outstanding’ across all areas of our inspection. Our report highlights leadership as “highly committed to supporting staff development” with coaching, mentoring and training of staff described as “meticulous”. Assessing the quality of care and education, the report says “staff care for children exceptionally well” and that “children flourish in this highly effective nursery and make rapid progress in their learning.”

We are so very proud of the whole team at Astbury Lane Nursery. This result is a testament to the hard work of the team and the commitment we made to our Congleton families that we would not only re-open this nursery following its’ closure under previous ownership, but that we would build it into an outstanding nursery they can all be proud of.

The report reflects all the hard work the team have put in. Children are so happy at nursery and the relationships with families are wonderful. The provision of high quality care and education is at the heart of our values so I am delighted Ofsted have recognised that our children make rapid progress in their learning and are exceptionally well prepared for school. We all want to thank local families for the support they have shown to nursery over the past two years as this has contributed greatly to it’s success.
