Children ‘blossom’ at Cromer playgroup - Ofsted
A Cromer playgroup that recently re-opened after a �180,000 revamp is celebrating again after getting a good Ofsted report.
Seaview Playgroup, in North Lodge Park, got a new roof, kitchen and toilets as part of a transformation funded by Norfolk County Council via its Sure Start capital grant.
On June 15, the playgroup, which opened in 1975, was visited by an Ofsted inspector.
A report about the facility, which has 48 children on roll, gave it an overall 'good' grading and said children 'blossom' during their time there.
It said: 'They thoroughly enjoy their time at this welcoming and vibrant setting. Staff are well-qualified, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, creating an effective team that is pro-active in ensuring children are happy, confident and thriving in their learning and development.
