AN Ofsted report has praised the quality and standards of care at Royston's Sunhill nursery.
The inspector reported how children were cared for in a comfortable, clean environment, and believed there to be adequate space to offer a wide range of activities.
The report added: "Their immediate safety, health, and welfare is well promoted, because staff understand and promote children's good health."
It was noted that manager Theresa Rushton had secure knowledge of the foundation stage, but this was not consistent across the staff group.

"However, their commitment concerning junior staff and pre-school education is no reflection on them, merely the fact they have not yet attended the necessary courses, because this age group is small enough for me to take at present."
The nursery is the first day nursery in the area to be inspected under the more rigorous Ofsted standards introduced in 2005.
The Ofsted report detailed how children with learning difficulties or disabilities, and those for whom English is not a first language, receive good support.
Staff were also praised for establishing working relationships with parents and extended families.
Quality assurance manager Tina Deveney said: "Sunhill Daycare imposes its own continuous quality assurances standards by unannounced visits to ensure consistent quality throughout our nursery chain, not just during an Ofsted inspection.
