Stepping Stones pre-school in Kettering is celebrating being awarded another outstanding Ofsted rating following an inspection in November.

Manager Jackie Black says their success is thanks to committed staff, supportive parents and “wonderful” children.

Among the aspects praised by the Ofsted inspectors were support for children for who English is an additional language, the preparation of hot lunches on site, and the wide range of outdoor opportunities including visits to country parks.

The pre-school, which is based at the Melton Community Centre, currently has 70 children on its register and an extensive waiting list, all cared for by 12 members of staff who are qualified up to degree level.
