THE hard work of staff at Uffculme Pre-school has been rewarded with a glowing report by education watchdogs.
Ofsted inspected the playgroup and gave it the second highest rating of 'good' in all areas.
Deputy manager Lesley Copsey said: "The pre-school has been running for 30 years now and along the way we have started a breakfast club and after-school club and more recently a holiday club with excellent results.
"Based in the grounds of Uffculme Primary School, we are able to provide a safe environment for all children that attend.

"Gaining this excellent report has proved that we offer fantastic childcare for two to four-year-olds and a wide range of experiences and education that helps our children to become confident and independent.
"It also shows that our out-of -hours clubs provide a brilliant service to the children at the pre-school and primary school where they have the opportunity to complete homework or to just spend time with friends.
"We have consistently received good Ofsted reports since the inspections began and this is all down to the experienced, hard-working staff we have.
" It is also with thanks to the parents, children and committee, as with their continued support, we remain a successful, popular childcare provider in the village," she added.
Ofsted inspector Sandra Croker said: "Children arrive enthusiastically to play in a warm, caring environment. They enjoy playing together with interesting resources and activities, which staff provide to help them learn and develop the necessary skills for their future learning.
"All children demonstrate friendly behaviour, initiating conversations and forming good relationships.
"Staff effectively encourage children to play with friends from all backgrounds – everyone feels included," she added.
Ofsted judge schools as either inadequate, satisfactory, good or outstanding following inspections.
