A Romford nursery’s first Ofsted inspection has rated its provision 'outstanding'.  

Montessori Minds Day Nursery in Eastern Road registered with the education regulator in 2018 and was visited for an inspection on November 29 last year.  

The report, which was published yesterday on January 11, rated the establishment 'outstanding' in all four categories - the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.  

It said: “Children are extremely happy and secure.  

“They show a very strong sense of belonging and extremely positive attitudes towards learning.”  

The report praised staff for planning an “exciting and ambitious curriculum that captures children’s interest” and said “children benefit from high-quality interaction and teaching is strong”, with children with special educational needs or disabilities being supported “extremely well”.
