Stepping Stones Pre-School has a new Ofsted unique reference number since we moved to Long Ditton in September 2017. That means our Ofsted inspection cannot be carried over to the new setting.

Ofsted unique reference number from September 2017


We have not yet had an Ofsted inspection at our new premises.

Ofsted unique reference number pre-September 2017


In July 2016, Stepping Stones Pre-School was awarded the grade Outstanding across all areas for the Ofsted inspection.

You can find current and past reports on Ofsted’s website here, or view a local copy of the 2016 report here. We even made a video to show what Ofsted had to say.

Here are some of our favourite quotes.

“Staff have an excellent understanding of their role in supporting children’s development.

The pursuit of excellence in everything they do has helped managers to make successful changes and achieve the best possible outcomes for all groups of children.

They plan challenging activities for children that help them learn excellent skills for school.

Staff constantly engage in activities with children and skilfully question their curiosity.

(The children) confidently use writing resources.

(The children) care for one another and behaviour is exemplary.

Staff build exceptional partnerships with parents and other professionals involved in children’s care.”
