Chippy’s ACE Centre has reaffirmed its reputation as one of the country’s top children’s centres, after it completed a hat-trick of “outstanding” verdicts from Ofsted.
All three units at the centre – family centre, day care, and nursery school – have been recognised as outstanding after recent Ofsted inspections. For the nursery school, it was its third “outstanding” verdict in a row.
Ofsted inspectors looked at 69 aspects of the centre across all three units, and rated every single one as outstanding.
ACE Centre head Helen Ruff said, “We’re incredibly chuffed that the hard work and commitment of the staff have been recognised. We’re particularly proud that Ofsted has recognised that we’ve maintained our high standards even at this time of cutbacks.”
