Hornsey nursery celebrates second ‘outstanding’ Ofsted in four years
A nursery is celebrating being judged as outstanding for the second time in four years.
Holly Bush Nursery in Redston Road, Hornsey, was given the highest possible rating by education watchdog Ofsted in all categories in a report published last week.
It was praised for promoting children’s good health and providing them with “stimulating learning experiences”.
Nursery owner Brenda Pond said: “It was fabulous to get an outstanding Ofsted the first time, so it was all to play for. It’s been nearly four years, so it was great. You have got to have confidence in what you are doing.
“We are really happy and celebrating, for the parents, for the children and for the team here.”
