Nursery penalised for not being ethnically diverse enough

Nursery penalised for not being ethnically diverse enough. Angry parents have blasted Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education in the UK, after it downgraded a top rural nursery for failing to teach three-year-olds about ethnic diversity.

The education watchdog even penalised Town and Country Kiddies Nursery in Lincolnshire for not having enough pictures of black and Asian people on the walls.

In a report, inspectors criticised the  nursery, which caters for children aged from eight-weeks to 11 years, for failing to teach youngsters about other cultures.

A mum, who did not want to be named, stormed: “Just because the majority of the kids are white shouldn’t be used as a stick to beat the  nursery  with.

Ofsted downgraded the nursery from ‘outstanding’ to ‘good’.
