A not for profit community pre-school and playgroup has scored a triple Ofsted success.

The Diggle Dandelions provides the highest quality care and education for local children aged two to five years located in the playground of Diggle Primary School

It was inspected on February 28 and has achieved outstanding in all areas for the third time running since opening in 2009.

Speaking on behalf of the pre-school, manager Jenna Evans said: “Due to the virus we had to close our doors and we were unable to tell our parents our result.

“As you can imagine, this was very upsetting and many parents were worried we were covering up bad news.

“Now we are able to share the news we would like to share it with everyone.

"We are thrilled to pieces with all our hard work and effort we have put into Diggle Dandelions and I couldn't have done it without my amazing staff and families for choosing us.”
