A north Norfolk pre-school has been given the seal of approval by Ofsted after previously being told it required improvement. 

Millfield Pre-School in North Walsham has been rated as "Good" by Ofsted after an inspection. 

It comes after the pre-school, which provides day care for children aged two to four, was said to require improvement after Ofsted's last visit in November 2022. 

In the much-improved report, the pre-school is said to be a "caring" environment for children, who are supported by "experienced and knowledgeable" staff.

Staff engage with the children throughout the day and the meaningful conversations they have help the children to develop confidence and practice their communication skills. 

Children at the pre-school display positive behaviour which they are praised and rewarded for by staff.

Books are central to the children's learning, which they enjoy choosing and are playfully encouraged to tell. 

Parents are said to value how welcoming staff are and say that their children look forward to attending the pre-school.

They feel confident that their children are both safe and secure.
