Rocky racoon visits Dalwood’s Folly Nursery
Youngsters celebrate after Ofsted rates their nursery outstanding
The Folly Nursery in Dalwood is celebrating a first class Ofsted report.
Inspectors rated it “outstanding”, saying: “children’s individual needs are met to a very high standard, and excellent partnerships with parents help assure their welfare.”
Manager Helen Freeman said they were thrilled with the result and especially happy that inspectors recognised the benefits of their new rural site and the high quality of care and education provided there.
To celebrate achieving Ofsted’s highest ranking, the nursery invited Rocky the racoon along to meet the children. His owner Tina Heath, of Manor Farm, Seaton, told the children all about racoons, where they live, what they eat, and where they sleep.
