Welwyn Garden City children’s centre impresses in Ofsted inspection
A CHILDREN’S Centre has become the first in Hertfordshire to be inspected by Ofsted – and left education bosses impressed.
The Early Years Partnership of Oak Tree Children’s Centre, Ludwick Nursery and Squirrels Day Nursery were all visited by Ofsted inspectors earlier this term.
Both Ludwick and Squirrels were deemed outstanding by inspectors, while Oak Tree, the first children’s centre in the county to be visited by Ofsted, was judged good with outstanding features.
Ria Longhurst, centre manager at the WGC facility in Holwell Road, said: “We are delighted that all the Ofsted inspection teams found so many outstanding aspects to our work at OTCC.
“High praise from parents about how the centre improves their lives and gives them skills and support were thrilling.

“We thought the children, many on their first day at school, were the stars of the show and prove that all three settings do provide a wonderful start to their education, thanks to the dedication and skill of all the staff here. “We look forward to doing more outstanding work in the future.”
Centre head Karen James said: “The staff at Oak Tree make a fantastic team.
