A STOURBRIDGE nursery has bounced back to an outstanding rating from Ofsted after it was marked as inadequate earlier this year.

Little Daisies, in Wollaston, has returned to top of the class following an inspection from the education watchdog in July.

The King Street nursery plummeted from outstanding to inadequate in February, with bosses stating they intended to officially complain to Ofsted, claiming the rating did not give a 'true reflection' of the nursery.

Now, the nursery has been rated as outstanding in each of Ofsted's areas of assessment, covering effectiveness of leadership and management; quality of teaching, learning and assessment; personal development, behaviour and welfare of pupils and outcomes for children.

Inspector Rebecca Johnson praised the nursery's provider, manager and staff for making 'vast improvements' since the last inspection and said the behaviour of children was 'exemplary'.

The provider and manager of the nursery were described as 'hands on' and 'approachable' and open to new ideas to improve the nursery further.

Teaching was said to 'inspirational' with children making 'exceptional progress' from different starting points.

Responding to the outstanding rating, Little Daisies Management Team said: "We are delighted by the Outstanding rating from our latest Ofsted inspection. The hard work and commitment of the team at the nursery has been rewarded and I am very pleased that the inspector recognised that we have ‘a highly skilled workforce who ensure excellent outcomes for children.’"
