Staff at a nursery were praised in an inspection for promoting individual learning.

Linnet Montessori Nursery, in Cranley Road, Ilford, was inspected on March 24 and received a good score.

The inspection praised the way children learned actively both in and outdoors, and the staff worked well to promote individual learning.

The report said: “Children are happy on arrival at the setting and settle quickly into activities laid out for them. In addition, they make choices of their own from the well-organised storage, which allows for children to do this.

“They benefit from positive staff guidance and interaction, to ensure they select resources that will support their individual development. Children are familiar with the staff. They are happy to have support from them and allow staff to guide them in their learning.

“They are confident to share their experiences with staff because they feel emotionally secure and form strong attachments with key persons. Staff have a clear understanding of how they can best meet children's needs by engaging with parents.”
