'Poor nurseries will be de-registered', says Ofsted head

The Chief Inspector of Education in England Sir Michael Wilshaw wants to get tougher on nurseries and childminders that are currently judged "satisfactory".

Ofsted are expected to announce that childcare providers currently classed as "satisfactory" will be dubbed "requiring improvement" and undergo extra inspections.

Sir Michael told BBC Breakfast nurseries that were "less than good were not good enough".

He was interviewed with Purnima Tanuku from the National Day Nurseries Association who said some Ofsted inspectors needed more early years experience.
