Stimulating activities help boost Rainbow Corner Day Nursery’s Ofsted rating
LITTLE ones at a Holton-le-Clay nursery school are over the rainbow at news it has improved its Ofsted rating.
Rainbow Corner Day Nursery, in Pinfold Lane, was rated "good" after their inspection on February 15 – an improvement on the "satisfactory" rating given in 2010.
The report comes as many schools and nurseries are finding their ratings falling after a new, more stringent framework governing inspections was introduced last year.
Kathleen Staines, owner and managing director of the nursery – which has 90 children – said the staff were delighted with the report which praised all their hard work.

She added: "Getting a 'good' status is getting harder every year, so it is even more satisfying to have improved when inspectors are looking for a higher standard.
"If you were 'good' in most areas, that was enough previously, but now you need to be 'good' in all categories.
"The report talked about the range of stimulating activities, a great understanding of their development and children making good progress in all areas.
"We're really proud of the achievement and it's a great reward for our very dedicated staff."
