Youngsters at Head Start Nursery School, Ramsey, celebrated with a special cake after the school qualified for an Investors in Children award.
The award was made by the Centre for Research in Early Childhood at University College, Worcester.
Children and staff celebrated at the presentation of the certificate by Councillor Susan Normington, chairman of Cambridgeshire County Council. The cake had the Investors in Children logo.
This award is the result of two years of hard work by the staff who undertook a self-evaluation programme by questioning parents and children about the setting, observing and recording the children as they played and learned, and also observing each other and recording staff interaction with the children.

The information was collated into a 44-page report. Some of the changes during the process included a staff handbook and, at the request of the children, more toys.
