A NURSERY has been awarded the top result for a third year in a row.

Hopscotch Nursery in Bavant Road, Brighton, has been rated outstanding in its latest Ofsted report. Staff are thrilled because it is the third consecutive outstanding result following inspections in 2013 and 2015.

Inspectors said: “The outstanding outcomes achieved are clearly attributable to the excellent staff monitoring, coaching and training systems in place.

“There is exceptionally high-quality teaching across the nursery.

“Leaders consistently reflect on practice and they are uncompromising in their ambition to maintain the continuous improvements.”

Hopscotch runs six nurseries across Sussex and has been rated outstanding at all four of its Brighton and Hove day nurseries.
