OLNEY Childminder Hilary Terry has been awarded the top grade of Outstanding as a result of her recent inspection by Ofsted.
In the Ofsted inspection year 2010 – 2011, only 11 per cent of childminders across England achieved this prestigious grade, so it is a highly coveted and much prized result.
To achieve the top grade of Outstanding, childminders must be graded Outstanding in all of the areas in which they are inspected. Excerpts from the report comment that Hilary “is highly motivated and exceptionally enthusiastic about her practice”, and that the “children thrive and make excellent progress”.
Hilary said she was delighted and very proud of her achievement, and is looking forward to receiving her certificate shortly.
