Playdays Nursery, in Chigwell Road, South Woodford, praised by Ofsted
An improving nursery has been rated good by Ofsted.
Playdays Nursery, in Chigwell Road, South Woodford, was praised by the education watchdog for its caring and effective staff, safe environment and good range of activities for children.
Inspector Clair Stockings said: "The nursery provides a good start to children's learning and play experiences.
"Children of all ages happily enjoy a stimulating programme of activities, which support them in making good progress in relation to their starting points.
"[There are] Rich experiences and resources".
But her report, published today, said the nursery was not yet outstanding because children who do not speak English as a first language needed to be encouraged to speak their home language more.
Opportunities for older children to become more independent also needed to be improved, she said.
The nursery was previously rated satisfactory in its last Ofsted report, which was published in March 2009.
