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’.
