A HEREFORDSHIRE nursery is said to be "bursting with pride" after its latest Ofsted inspection.

Little Leintwardine Nursery has been recognised as "Outstanding" for its "highly engaging and nurturing setting."

The findings follow a visit from Ofsted inspectors in September 2022.

The nursery was also rated outstanding after inspectors last visit in 2015.


The nursery was first registered in 2010. It employs five members of childcare staff and provides funded early education for two, three, and four-year-old children.

In the report, published last week, there were no areas found where significant improvements needed to be made.

Inspectors found that children behave exceptionally well, sharing resources and inviting others to their play.

They also have "incredible play opportunities" that enhance their physical development.

Younger children learn to ride balance bikes and tricycles, and the most able children progress to riding two-wheeled pedal bikes.


Inspectors said that staff strive to make endless improvements for the benefit of children. Staff receive continual feedback on their performance from management and are highly proficient in

reflecting on their own practice, to ensure that children's experiences are limitless.

Inspectors said that parents know that their children are loved and they receive the highest quality of care and education.

Nursery manager Hannah Morgan said that the team, already well prepared for an inspection, truly shone on the day.

She said: "We pride ourselves in providing an excellent level of care for our children, getting to know the parents and the families, and helping the children grow in a safe nurturing environment.

"It's a fantastic achievement and I am bursting with pride for us all here at Little Leintwardine Nursery."

"May we take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support."
