Staff at Ladybird Playgroup in Thriplow were thrilled to have been awarded a rating of ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Playgroup leader Sharon McGinty said staff are extremely pleased and proud of the grade.

“This is fantastic news and a great reward to all the staff who work extremely hard to make the playgroup a safe and caring environment for

your children,” she said.

Staff were commended for their ‘highly effective teaching, continually helping children to develop and explore their own ideas’ and the report said the extremely well-led team worked very effectively together, in order to deliver a high quality provision for all children.
