Cheveley Acorns pre-school, judged inadequate by Ofsted in January, has been given a good rating following the latest visit by inspectors.

The pre-school was told in January that resources did not offer adequate stimulation for independent learning and that progress for two-year-olds was not effective.

This time round children are said to enjoy making their own choices in the toys and resources they use and time was taken to learn about individual children’s learning needs so that staff could plan and support children’s ongoing learning.

Inspectors remarked on a stimulating and welcoming environment and said children enjoyed exciting activities with safe and age appropriate equipment. Partnerships with parents were good and staff approachable and easy to talk to.

The pre-school committee said: “We are delighted that Ofsted have recognised that Acorns Pre-School is ‘good’ in all areas. Without the support from parents, the community plus the hard work of staff and the committee and support from Early Years advisors this would not have been possible.”
