Jackie Arthur, managing director of Happy Days Nurseries, said: "We are delighted to have achieved such an outstanding result on a national basis. We have consolidated our business and focused on quality and it has paid off.
"The children and parents come first in our business and it is our duty to give them the very best childcare. In our nurseries we implement the latest methodology in the development of children up to the age of five and we employ quality staff with experience and drive to run our nurseries to a high standard."
