Dinotots Childcare Ltd, based in Elliott Street, has only been open since September 2.

Following the registration as a day care setting, it recently had a full inspection on the newly released framework and achieved a Good rating by the inspectors across all areas.

They said that the children have very positive and nurturing relationships with staff, parents are provided with good-quality information and staff plan an exciting range of activities that engage children and motivate them to learn.

Mark Chapman, managing director of the nursery, said the rating was "a massive achievement for all the staff".

He added: "With the amendments to the framework for inspections only being released in September, we were initially unsure how the newly employed team members would adapt.

"We chose the team due to their high qualifications, dedication to caring for children and their fun and happy dispositions and although over the past eight weeks we have recognised how hard our amazing team works, it is wonderful to have that officially acknowledged by Ofsted.

“We have been overwhelmed by the continued support of our parents and we are all absolutely ecstatic. We are very proud of our wonderful children, without whom this success would not be possible."
