A CHILDREN’S centre has been given an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating.
Inspectors found that the provision at Audley and Queen’s Park Children’s Centre, Pringle Street, Blackburn, deserved the highest possible rating.

“The educational programmes have depth and breadth and are delivered by staff who have very high expectations of themselves and children.
“Children have access to an extremely stimulating pre-school, both indoors and out, which effectively supports them and promotes their learning.
“Staff have an excellent understanding of the safeguarding and welfare requirements of the early years foundation stage.
“The rigorous implementation of robust policies and procedures successfully promotes children’s safety and well-being.”
