A Northfleet nursery is celebrating a successful Ofsted report.

KBT Kids Day Nursery in Spital Street was graded as 'good' by Ofsted following a surprise inspection on July 14.

Ofsted noted in its report, released on August 7, that "children are very happy and settled in the nursery".

It was recognised that "babies and children form strong bonds and secure emotional attachments, which helps them to gain a strong sense of belonging and well-being."

Nursery owner Katie Ballard opened KBT Kids full-time in April.

She said: "Myself and the team are all genuinely delighted that the inspector could identify with the quality of the setting, and that the passion, enthusiasm and fun within the nursery was reflected in the narrative throughout the report.

"We know that we have a skilled and caring team, engaging with happy, settled children in a safe and well-resourced environment - that’s why we have contented parents, and that’s why my children attend the nursery each day.

"It is of course encouraging however to see these facts reflected in a formal inspection report."
