An Elstead day nursery has been graded as ‘good’ following its latest Ofsted inspection in March.

The Tenderlinks Day Nursery at The Pavilion had a previous grading of ‘inadequate’, which the centre blamed on a complaint by a former employee according to a previous report by the Herald.

Since last year, the nursery has appointed a new manager Amanda Vaus who has worked with the team to improve standards.

In the recent inspection, Ofsted said: “Children's learning is enhanced through the skilful interaction of staff.

“Staff provide a wide range of activities that develop children's understanding of the world and support children to develop good physical skills.”

“Children are happy, active learners who thoroughly enjoy being at the nursery.”

Tenderlinks has a capacity of 32 attending children full and part-time and is open five days a week from 7.30am to 6pm.

Amanda Vaus, nursery manager, said: “I am delighted with the report and the fact that the positive changes have been recognised.

“We have been on a real journey within the last six months, and I look forward to continuing this success to ensure the very best for every single child at Tenderlinks Day Nursery, Elstead.

“I must say a huge thank you to our team who are 100 per cent committed and go above and beyond every day, I am so proud of them all.

“A special thanks must also go to our children who are the heart of our Nursery family and at the centre of everything we do.”
