* Lake Street Playgroup ran from 1969-2018 as a charity and childcare and education provider. In 2018 the charity changed its legal status from an unincorporated to an incorporated charity, CIO. Due to ths change in legal status the entry with Ofsted for Lake Street Playgroup is marked as ‘closed’ on the Ofsted website. This can make it harder to find our last Ofsted report, which we had as Playgroup in October 2014 and was Outstanding.
The new name of the organisation is Lake Street Nursery and Pre-School CIO, to be known as Lake Street Nursery and the last Ofsted report for the setting can be found through a link on the Ofsted web-site and via Lake Street Nursery website pages. The setting's management, Trustees,staffing and pedagogy has remained unchanged by this legal change.
