A NURSERY has been rated ‘good’ by inspectors from education watchdog Ofsted.

Primrose House Children’s Nursery in Primrose Street, Darwen, was given the rating after an inspection last month.

Inspector Sue Rae said: “Children’s welfare and development is well supported through the effective partnership working with parents.

“Teaching is good because staff have a good knowledge and understanding of how young children learn.

“This means they plan a range of activities that help children to make good progress in their learning and development.

“Babies and children’s emotional well-being is well promoted. They have developed strong bonds with their key person, who helps them to feel safe and secure in the nursery.

“Children’s safety is well supported through the comprehensive and consistently applied risk assessments.

“Staff ratios and good deployment ensures children are cared for in a safe and secure environment.”
