CHILDREN and staff at a village playgroup are celebrating after scoring high marks with education watchdogs.

Garboldisham Playgroup, which caters for youngsters aged two to under five, has been graded ‘outstanding’ in several areas by Ofsted inspectors.

The playgroup, in Smallworth Common, Garboldisham, received the highest praise for its effectiveness in safeguarding children, encouraging them to adopt healthy lifestyles and the extent to which they feel safe.

All other areas were rated as ‘good’ including the overall effectiveness of early years provision.

Playgroup leader Lin Newstead said: “Our main aim is to support the children’s confidence and self esteem so that we can all enjoy learning through play.”
