A NURSERY in Southsea has been awarded a ‘good’ Ofsted report with several ‘outstanding’ features.

Stepping Stones Nursery School, in Bruce Road, received a very positive inspection following a visit on January 31.

Inspector Alison Kaplonek reported: ‘Management and staff work hard to create a welcoming environment and they meet each child’s individual needs well.

‘They take part in many enjoyable learning experiences both indoors, out in the garden and in the local community.

‘Extremely good links with parents ensures that every child is well supported.’

Stepping Stones was awarded ‘good’ in 17 out of 20 categories, and received ‘oustanding’ in three remaining categories, including the extent to which children make a positive contribution.

There are currently 74 children aged between three months to eight years, and 26 of these are in the early years age range.
