A CAMBRIDGESHIRE nursery where a baby choked to death a year ago tomorrow (Thursday) has made "very good steps" to protect children's welfare, according to inspectors.
Ten-month-old Georgia Hollick choked to death on a piece of apple at the Just Learning Nursery in Cambourne.
The nursery had been threatened with closure, but a report carried out by Ofsted inspectors showed procedures were improving.
The nursery has been graded as "good" for keeping children safe and healthy, and now has a "high number of first aid trained staff".

An investigation into the nursery after Georgia's death found health and safety at the nursery was being compromised because staff did not follow guidelines.
Jonathan Bell, managing director of Just Learning told The Hunts Post: "First and foremost we must remember that [Thursday] is a very sad day for Georgia's family. The nursery and the staff team are still coming to terms with this tragic accident and we will remember Georgia quietly and privately and her family will never be far from our thoughts."
He added: "We have provided extra support for the nursery and we are confident that manager Julie Heginbottom and the staff team will take the nursery forward."
