St Mary’s Pre-school was inspected by Jan Harvey, who said staff were welcoming and provided an inviting environment for the children. She said the quality of teaching and the behaviour of the youngsters was good, with staff seen as positive role models.
The pre-school, which operates from St Mary’s Youth Centre, has been registered since 2008 and is open on weekdays during school terms. Ms Harvey praised the good relationships between staff and parents and highlighted the range of good quality toys and resources available to the children.
She said those at the preschool gained the skills needed for their next stage of learning, while managers were committed to improving their “high quality” practice and outcomes for the children.
