IN the wake of all the negative press concerning schools and Ofsted, a little nursery in Diddlebury, Corvedale Centre for Children has bucked the trend and has been reported good. After a no-notice inspection the report was glowing.

Colin Jones, leader said "It is fantastic news that Ofsted have acknowledged all the hard work the staff and committee have put in. Most importantly the children, parents and staff and happy and work as a great team."

Corrabeth Bishop committee secretary said "We are delighted that the report has stated us as good, as a team we have worked very hard. Phillipa Burns joined us a deputy leader in February and has brought many skills to the setting and Mel Ibbott has joined us as an apprentice."

Corvedale Centre for Children offers childcare for children aged from two to 11 years through the pre-school, after-school clubs, breakfast club and holiday clubs. It is located in their own area of Corvedale C of E School in the village of Diddlebury in the picturesque Corvedale, approximately seven miles from Craven Arms and eight miles from Ludlow. They provide a safe, stimulating and caring environment that promotes learning through play, using a wide range of resources and the opportunity for children to develop their social skills as they play alongside and with other children.

Enrolling now for September and holiday club.
