An under-fives centre in west Norfolk has been judged outstanding in all areas by Ofsted, and has been praised for its work with shy children and enjoyable story sessions.

The inspection at Beaupré in Church Drove, Outwell, near Wisbech, was carried out in the first week of May.

Cindy Hare, the centre manager, said: 'We are all extremely pleased with the outcome of the inspection.

'Since our last inspection in October 2009 - when we were judged good - we have worked hard to improve on the areas identified, which has resulted in this fantastic result.

'The success of the centre is down to the hard work and commitment of the centre community. We have a highly dedicated team, wonderful children and a very supportive parent body.'

Chairman of the under-fives centre, Michaela Calvert, said: 'The extremely high level of dedication shown by staff along with the support of the parents comes together to provide a welcoming environment in which the children flourish.

'As a committee we know that it's our staff that make all the difference. We know our centre is outstanding and we are glad Ofsted agrees.'

To further improve the quality of the early years provision, the report said the centre should extend the excellent partnership working arrangements in place by continuing to develop the work carried out with the local children's centre.
