Children at a pre-school impressed inspectors with their manners and good behaviour.

Education watchdog visited Let's Play Too Pre-School in Teresa Greene Community Centre in Leys Avenue, Dagenham, on October 4 and published its report on November 29.

Inspectors gave the nursery the second highest 'good' rating across the key areas of quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development and leadership and management.

In the report, they wrote: "Children behave well and have good social skills.

"They say 'please' and 'thank you' without the need for prompting.

"The staff are good role models. They praise the children and encourage them to take turns, listen to simple instructions and help each other."

The report praised the nursery's management, its curriculum and the opportunities available to pupils as well as the education it gave children on hygiene.

To improve it further, inspectors suggested that staff review the activities they provide which give children the opportunity to develop their understanding and appreciation of diversity further.

They also noticed that younger children sometimes lose interest and staff do not always spot the moments when they need to adapt their activities to suit the younger children.

The report added that parents are extremely happy with the nursery and many said that their children have become more independent since attending.
