Staff at a day nursery in St Neots are celebrating after being awarded a ‘good’ rating in their first Ofsted inspection.

The Cracker Jacks Day Nursery in Foundry Way, Eaton Socon, opened in February 2015 and was inspected on July 9; it has also been awarded a five-star rating from the Food Hygiene Standards Agency.

The family-run business, prides itself on “nurturing relationships with families and children” and team work.

Inspectors said: “Staff working with younger children are kind and attentive. Babies have cuddles and their needs are attended to with sensitivity. Children achieve the key skills they need for school. They demonstrate good levels of independence.”

Manager, Tara Peart, told The Hunts Post that staff had work hard in a short space of time to offer a range of play activities and develop a good team of people to prepared youngsters for school.
