A childminder where pupils can do yoga has been rated 'outstanding' once again by the education regulator.

Rochelle Larkin, based in Headley Chase in Warley, Brentwood, received the highest possible Ofsted grade after a November 30 inspection.

Ofsted published its report last week, showing Ms Larkin had kept her 2018 'outstanding' score.

The ratings body praised the childminder for exceptional pupil behaviour.

"Children are exceptionally well behaved and know exactly what they have to do," the Ofsted report said.

"The childminder is an excellent role model, teaching children about kindness and respect," it was added.

Ofsted also said that children at the childminder enjoyed daily yoga sessions and practised mindfulness in the garden.

The childminder was judged to have an extensive knowledge and understanding of safeguarding and child protection.

Ms Larkin provides childcare services to pupils aged one to nine, Ofsted said.

The childminder was registered in 2004 and lives in Brentwood, operating from 8am until 6pm all year round.
