Lerwick Pre-School Group, which caters for children aged between three and five, has been rated “Very Good” by government inspectors.
The inspection said that the children were confident and enthusiastic and were progressing very well in learning. There was a high level of care and welfare for all children. They enjoyed "high quality experiences" and opportunities for learning outdoors and in the local area. The staff were said to be motivated and committed, working very effectively together to support children.
Councillor Vaila Wishart, who chairs the Council's Education and Families Committee, said: "This very good report demonstrates that our partner providers are offering a very high standard of pre school provision."
