The children and staff at Poppies Nursery in Leagrave are celebrating after being awarded an Outstanding rating by Ofsted.

The report praised the Linden Road nursery for the way children are inspired to fully engage, explore and develop their own ideas during their learning experiences.

The inspector said: “Children rapidly build close bonds with their key person and other staff at the nursery. They thrive in the staff’s care and rapidly become confident and settled. Children are very happy and demonstrate that they feel safe. Through frequent praise and encouragement, children rapidly develop their self-esteem.”

Manager Tracey Perkins said: “We are a team and we all work together and with the parents to give every child the best possible nursery experience with a focus on learning and developing through play. We are really passionate about the work we do and proud that the hard work of the team has been recognised.”
