Childrens ofsted 001Daniel Nieto, age two, and his mum Maria were among families who took part in celebrations at Uxbridge College Children's Centre.Nearly 100 mums, children and even a grandmother or two joined celebrations at Uxbridge College Children’s Centre.

The party on Tuesday 21 May, which included face-painting, games, a family zumba session and of course a celebration cake, was held to mark the result of the centre’s first Ofsted inspection in which it was graded ‘Good’.

The centre, which opened three years ago, supports families from in and around Hayes in a wide range of areas including health and fitness, parenting support, adult education, and financial and housing advice.

The Ofsted report, which followed an inspection in March, praised the centre for its positive outcomes including:

* creating a warm and welcoming environment for families attending the centre

* caring for and supporting families effectively during difficult times

* improving the mental health and well-being of families and children

* increasing the numbers of mothers starting and continuing breastfeeding

* improving achievement in local primary schools as a knock-on effect

Inspectors also noted that there was an exceptionally strong sense of teamwork at the centre. Rose Alphonse, who reports to the Principal of the College and Hillingdon Council, was instrumental in setting up the centre and has overseen its management since it opened in March 2010.
