CHILDREN at Buttons and Bows Pre-school in Sawtry are "cared for in a relaxed and welcoming environment", according to an Ofsted report.
The report, carried out in December, found the pre-school was good in all areas, including teaching and learning. Inspectors said: "Children's confidence and self-esteem are sensitively nurtured and the positive environment promotes the development of the attitudes that enable them to achieve in their future learning."
Staff were highly praised for providing "consistent support and meaningful praise".
Julie Howells, pre-school manager, said everyone was delighted with the report.
"Our aim is to enhance the learning and development of our children, encourage independence, self-esteem and confidence and this was mentioned throughout the report, which shows a true reflection of our pre-school."
The pre-school was also praised last year at The Way To Be Awards in Cambridge for its outstanding efforts to enrich the lives of disabled children.
