All of us at ABC Pre School Swalecliffe are celebrating the success of our OFSTED inspection. We were marked as Outstanding in all areas and received an inspection report to be proud of. It has always been our vision to continually improve practices and in turn provide the best possible outcomes for the children who attend the setting and this has now been recognised. We will continue to work hard and ensure we always provide a warm, friendly and exciting environment where children are at the heart of all learning. We are extremely proud to be part of such a tight hard working team who share in the vision we both have for our settings. Each team member plays an important part within the setting and the hard work, dedication and commitment to succeed has paid off. We all feel honoured to be in our individual roles and be part of our abc children’s lives, contributing towards their learning, development and future. This recent inspection has filled us all with a huge sense of pride and has given us all even more “fire in our bellies.” We are all excited for the future, keen to develop our knowledge and skills even further and continue to improve practices. The very proud… Michelle and Rachel
