We offer truly outstanding nursery care for children - and Ofsted agree


Westwood Nursery wins further national and local acclaim

Westwood Nursery

Our Nursery has been assessed as Outstanding again

We have again achieved the highest possible Ofsted rating.

Ofsted visited the Nursery on 31 July under its current arrangements, which enable inspections without advance notice.  On 5 August 2015, Ofsted confirmed that it had been assessed as Outstanding overall and in each of the three assessment subcategories.

The Nursery had previously been inspected by Ofsted in October 2011 when it was given an Outstanding rating.

Pauline Young, Childcare Services Manager, said: “We are delighted that Ofsted has recognised the outstanding care and development that the Westwood Nursery and its staff offer all the children. At a time when the Ofsted inspections are getting more exacting, this is a huge achievement.”
