A pre-school in Harpenden is overjoyed after receiving an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating for the second time in a row.

Noah’s Ark Pre-school at Crabtree Church earned the accolade following an inspection in October.

Nursery manager, Denise Shaw, who recently took over the position, said: “It’s amazing, it was fantastic for all the staff to know that we’re doing a good job.

“I was hoping we would [get this rating] because what we offer is really good, so it was great [when we got it].”
