A MONTESSORI nursery school in Clavering has been scored as either 'good' or 'outstanding' in all categories assessed by Ofsted inspectors.
Hill Green Montessori Nursery School had its first Ofsted report published this week and principal, Clare Lawrence, said she was delighted with the results.
"I'm pleased with the progress that all the children have made and I want to thank all the excellent staff we have here for their hard work," she said.
"I am pleased to be able to work with such supportive parents who are so keen to get the best for their children."
Particularly pleasing for the school was scoring an 'outstanding' mark for the extent to which children achieve and enjoy their learning.
The Ofsted inspectors said: "Children develop a clear understanding and demonstrate excellent skills with regard to communication, literacy, problem solving, knowledge and understanding of the wider world and information communication technology. They explore everything around them, asking questions about how things work or what they do.
The report added that staff meet the individual needs of all children "extremely well" and that their "well-developed knowledge of each child makes sure that welfare and learning is successfully promoted".
The nursery operates from a two-story converted chapel and has access to a secure outdoor play area. There are currently 23 children on the roll. Ofsted inspectors said "parents and carers feel supported and would recommend the nursery to others".
