The 85 North East nursery schools currently rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted

It’s a child’s first taste of formal education which makes nursery schools an important part of their lives. All parents and guardians want the best for their children and to get a good start in life.

And it looks like across the North East’s seven local authority areas – Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, Northumberland, County Durham, North Tyneside and South Tyneside – they have a good selection of high quality, nursery schools and schools with nursery provision.

We have looked at inspection reports carried out by Ofsted – the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills – on all nurseries across the North East.

For each it gives four ratings – ‘outstanding’ at the top, followed by ‘good’, ‘requires improvement’ and then ‘inadequate’.

We have singled out those rated ‘outstanding’ under the category of nursery school / school with nursery as well as pre school / day nursery and out-of-school care. In all there are 85 across the region.

We have divided our results up into each local authority and give the name of the school as well as the date of the Ofsted report.
