| Posted by Kelly Salambasis

Staff and children at More2Childcare Nursery in Greenwich are celebrating after retaining their Outstanding Ofsted Grade.

More2Childcare has been awarded the top mark again by Ofsted, following an Inspection at the end of July 2023 (the previous and first inspection was in 2018).

They now join their sister nursery More2Riverside to become the only two privately owned Ofsted Outstanding Nurseries in the SE10 postcode area (as of 29th August 2023) since Ofsted started to inspect under the new statutory framework (introduced in September 2021).

The results were officially celebrated with the children and parents of the nursery with decorations in the garden.

Kelly Salambasis, Eve Daniels and Glenda Alexander, Co-Owners who opened the nursery in 2016, along with Director of Childcare, Rosie Bennett who oversees daily operations, say they are “over the moon” to have achieved the top rating.

They added “We are incredibly proud of the team at More2Childcare – it’s incredibly tough to get the top grade. A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes to retain the highest standards and it really is testament to our amazing Director of Childcare and professional and committed staff team.They strive every day to go above and beyond for the children in their care”.

Some of the highlights from the Ofsted report read:

  • Children are highly motivated and self-assured learners.
