Children's Centre Shows Improvement

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

CAWTHORNE Children's Centre has shown improvement since it was last visited by Ofsted inspectors four years ago.

The centre, on Taylor Hill, was told the standard and quality of its early years provision is 'good' - a step up from the 'satisfactory' rating it was given in 2009.

A report said the indoor and outdoor areas are rich with opportunities for learning and they're thoughtfully planned to allow children to investigate. As a result, they develop considerable confidence as learners.

It states: "Children flourish in the safe, extremely welcoming and inclusive environment.

"They settle extremely well, show high levels of confidence and are highly motivated to learn."

They said parents are kept 'extremely well informed' about their child's progress which enables them to effectively continue their child's learning at home.

"The whole staff team is dedicated to continuously improving the service that they provide for children," the report says.

Carol Hill, the children's centre's business manager, said: "As a new management team, and highly committed staff team, we've been working tirelessly over the last two-and-a-half-years to continuously raise the standards and quality of our care and provision."

Sarah Baker, the childcare manager at the centre, added: "We're extremely proud of our improved rating.

"We're pleased that Ofsted has recognised that we offer a very high quality, rich and vibrant environment in which children flourish and are confident learners."
