Highly motivated staff and exceptional parent partnerships have helped a Norfolk nursery to an outstanding rating from inspectors.

Busy Bees Day Nursery at Norwich Meridian, on the Meridian Business Park in Norwich, had its ranking bumped from "requires improvement" to the highest grade following an inspection in May.

The inspector found extremely strong drive among the management team which had led to "significant, sustained improvements" since its previous inspection a year earlier.

The report said children behaved well, had rich and varied play opportunities, were given a voice by staff and were helped to develop an excellent understanding of the world around them.

Children were also said to make excellent progress from their starting points and develop a deep enjoyment for learning and a broad range of skills through indoor and outdoor activities.
