Outstanding Childcare Honoured In Dorset
8:29am 7th December 2014
Nurseries, pre-schools and child minders in Dorset have had their hard work celebrated at a special awards ceremony.
Dorset County Council's Early Years and Childcare Awards recognise the excellent standards of those who've been given the highest Ofsted grade.
Dorset County Council's director for children's services Sara Tough said: "These early years of a child's life are arguably the most important in setting the foundations for future development, so I'm delighted that a number of early years, childcare settings and child minders in Dorset are rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
"Parents can be confident that their little ones are in good hands and are being given the best start in life."
Awards were also presented to those committed to improving their knowledge and skills working with children by achieving Early Years Teacher Status and Early Years Foundation Degree.
There are now 116 organisations and people dedicated to working with young children in the county who've achieved the 'Outstanding' grade from inspectors.
