Tots from a Burnley nursery are celebrating after it was given a good rating by inspectors.

Staff at Little Acorns Community Nursery, based at the Chai Centre, in Hurtley Street, said they were delighted following the visit from Ofsted.

Inspectors praised the nursery, saying children are happy and display high levels of confidence and self-esteem.

Staff were said to be excellent role models, well qualified and experienced. “Children develop good independence and self-help skills at mealtimes,including the youngest children, who serve food, chop fruit and pour their own drinks, with support and encouragement from staff.”

Nursery manager Jane Grice said: “I would like to personally thank my team for supporting me.”
