A NURSERY in Sparsholt has been rated as one of the best in the south east.

Farley Nursey in Sparsholt was awarded top ratings and was ranked among the top 20 out of 2,056 other nurseries within the region.

The group the nursery is part of, Storal Learning, also won an award for being one of the Top 20 Nursery Groups in the UK, out of 1,435 nursery groups in the UK.

The top nurseries will receive an award from daynurseries.co.uk, with the award based on the nursery’s reviews from the children’s families and carers. The nurseries were rated on overall standard, facilities and outside space, while learning, resources and equipment were all key contributors.

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of daynurseries.co.uk, said: “We would like to congratulate Farley Nursery School on being rated by parents as a top nursery in south east England. Being chosen as one of the best nurseries in the UK by family and carers of children that attend the setting is a huge achievement.

“Our award is recognition from parents and carers that this nursery is offering their children a high standard of care that is key to their social and emotional development as well as their learning.

“We would like to congratulate Storal Learning on their group award. The vision and ethos of a nursery group can have a huge impact on children, enabling them to learn in a calm and stable environment where they can grow at their own pace and develop good self-esteem."

Feedback from parents is so important to us and this award is fantastic recognition of the dedication and passion of the Farley team.”

Sarah Mackenzie, CEO Storal Learning said: “It's been a truly amazing year and we’re over the moon to be named in the Top 20 nursery groups in the UK. Feedback from parents, children and our team is pivotal, it’s what drives and motivates us and to receive an accolade directly influenced by our parents is incredible and means so much to our teams. At Storal it all starts with the idea that every child and every parent has a different story to tell.”
