A nursery where children have smiles across their face as soon as they arrive has been rewarded with a 'good' Ofsted grade.

Get Set Go Nursery, based at Cumberland Infant School in Southsea, was given the thumbs-up by Her Majesty's Inspector Gail Robertson for its enterprising and fun activities that keep children engaged.

She wrote: 'When children arrive they are so pleased to see their friends and immediately set to work once they have self-registered.

'It is the outside area they love, making full use of the activities available for them.

'The nursery setting is most welcoming, made attractive, cosy and interesting.

'Children are all making good progress as a result of the good quality adult interaction and the desire they have to find out more.'

She added: 'Children enjoy coming to this good nursery - they have smiles on their face as soon as they arrive.

'There are interesting displays of children's work and prompts for them to use in most areas of learning.'
