A nursery in Earlsfield has achieved an 'oustanding' rating in its first Ofsted inspection.

Magdalen Nursery, on St George’s Grove, which has been opened for two years, received ‘outstanding in all areas' in the inspection.

Lucy St Ledger, director at Magdalen Nursey said: “We are over the moon with the Outstanding rating. The whole team has been working tirelessly to create a nursery that reflects our values and principles of giving children the perfect start in life. The nursery is very beautiful, however our staff and management make this nursery Outstanding and we are all so proud of them.”

The purpose built nursery, run by husband and wife team Lucy and Tallat Mukhtar is their second nursery in Wandsworth.

They opened their first nursery six years ago with help from their local community who believed the area needed a childcare and community hub. Their second setting, opened by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is a continuation of the community spirit.

The inspection on Tuesday, June 19 found the facilities and design of the nursery impressive as well as finding the quality of teaching pivotal to the relaxed and confident nature of the children.

Jane Morgan, Ofsted inspector said: “The staff are superb role models, they make excellent use of the resources within the nursery, encouraging effective learning opportunities for the children. The children are tremendously independent and exceptionally well behaved.”
