The manager of Weldon Pre-School has told of her delight after it was awarded a ‘good’ grade in its latest Ofsted inspection.

The not-for-profit pre-school, in the Village Hall, Bridge Street, caters for children aged two to four.

The report highlights the quality of the teaching at the school, praising the time spent encouraging the children to explore their ideas, as well as giving them the freedom to choose their own activities.

The inspector also noted how the children enjoy the relaxed and fun environment of the pre-school, and how the setting stands the children in good stead for the move up to primary school.

Weldon Pre-School manager Carlene Fox said: “We’re all so very pleased with the findings of the Ofsted report.

“We have a great team here, who work extremely hard to turn Weldon Village Hall into a fun and lively pre-school each and every day, something which is evident in the inspector’s report.

“We pride ourselves on providing the very best care and learning opportunities for local children in a safe, friendly and nurturing environment.

“As we’re a not-for-profit setting, we rely on fundraising to ensure we can continue to provide early years education for the children of Weldon, Corby and the surrounding area, so we’re lucky that we have a very supportive network of parents and carers.

“We’re also very fortunate to have a great bunch of children at the pre-school, a little group of inquisitive minds who ensure that no two days are the same and who never fail to raise a smile.”
