A combination of 'high expectations', good teaching and a motivation to learn is part of the reason that a Great Yarmouth nursery has been found to be 'good' by education inspectors.

Ofsted visited Peggotty Nursery, in Peggotty Road, in November, and the resulting report was released last month.

The report found the nursery, which provides provision for children aged two, three and four, delivered 'exciting and motivating teaching.'

It read: 'Children are very happy, settle quickly and form extremely secure bonds with the staff.'

The nursery, which opened in 2011, employs seven members of staff who all hold early years childcare qualifications and was assessed as 'good' in all areas of the inspection.

Osted reported that staff 'strive to provide the best possible early education for the children in their care.'

Nursery manager, Liz Enfield, said: 'We're very happy with the result because it is hard to get a good rating thesedays. And it's purely down to the hard work of our staff and the support of our families, because we are in a deprived area.

'Looking forward, we're just going to keep going, working on the communication skills of the children and making them school ready.'

Peggotty Nursery is part of a small group of five nurseries that are managed by Great Yarmouth Community Trust, a local charity.

Another nursery run by the trust, Little People's Montessori, in Norwich was recently found to be 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
