A HECKMONDWIKE nursery has retained its Good rating from Ofsted following a recent visit by inspectors.

The Counting House Nursery, in Market Street, was praised for its “strong staff and management team”.

The report said: “All groups of children make good progress during their time in the nursery.

“Staff keep children safe. They understand how to identify any concerns and procedures to record and report them.

“Relationships with parents are extremely positive. Parents comment on the warm and welcoming environment and children’s good progress.

“Staff plan motivating and imaginative activities and help children to develop good personal and social skills.”

To improve further, the nursery was told to promote children’s reasoning and improve the quality of learning resources.
