Out­stand­ing view of vi­tal cen­tre

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

A CHIL­DREN’S cen­tre has been rated out­stand­ing in its an­nual re­view by the Peter­bor­ough’s Chil­dren’s Trust.

In a sur­vey of par­ents car­rried out by Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil’s Or­ton Chil­dren’s Cen­tre, in Or­ton Mal­borne, for chil­dren aged up to five, 98 per cent said they were sat­is­fied with the qual­ity of ser­vices of­fered at the cen­tre and 73 per cent were very sat­is­fied.

When par­ents were asked what dif­fer­ence the cen­tre has made to their fam­i­lies lives, one par­ent said: “This has made a mas­sive dif­fer­ence.

“My daugh­ter has made many new friends.

She added: “She’s much more con­fi­dent and loves play­ing with the other chil­dren.”

Each year chil­dren’s cen­tres com­plete a self-eval­u­a­tion form, grad­ing as­pects of their work as out­stand­ing, good, sat­is­fac­tory or in­ad­e­quate.

The self-eval­u­a­tion form is then pre­sented to se­nior man­agers within Peter­bor­ough’s Chil­dren’s Trust who re­view each cen­tre’s progress and agree the grades awarded.

Lynda Davies, the coun­cil’s man­ager of the cen­tre, said: “This is a tremen­dous achieve­ment for the staff and part­ners of the chil­dren’s cen­tre.”

Councillor Sheila Scott, cabi­net mem­ber for chil­dren’s ser­vices, said: “This shows it is pro­vid­ing chil­dren and their fam­i­lies with an out­stand­ing ser­vice.”
