YOUNGSTERS are making good progress at a Wearside nursery.

Little Learners Day Nursery, in Ettrick Grove, Sunderland, has been rated good overall following a visit by Ofsted inspectors.

A report said: “Management is constantly striving for quality, to provide children with the environments and experiences that help them to make good progress.

“Staff support children to make healthy food choices and to understand the need for physical exercise. They help children to be independent and encourage them to manage their own personal needs.”

Inspectors said parents are kept well informed about their children’s progress and highly value the support staff provide. They said safeguarding of children is given a high priority and staff understand how to protect them from abuse or neglect.

To further improve the quality of the early years provision, inspectors said the nursery should enhance the balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities to ensure that levels of challenge are consistently high so all children reach top levels of attainment.
