Ofsted

We were last inspected under Waters Edge Children's Nursery in September 2017 with Ofsted recognising us as being Outstanding.

With such a fantastic outcome we have spent the past 5 years working hard to continue our Outstanding practice.

We have continued to develop our team of practitioners, our environment and our knowledge to ensure our practice is to the highest standard.
