A CHILDCARE centre has achieved a glowing report.

Following a recent inspection by Care Inspectorate Wales, a number of positives were recorded at the The Oak Tree Centre on Fforddlas, Rhyl.

Inspectors said youngsters at the centre, which provides a full day care service for 77 children up to the age of 12, were “happy and enthused” by their learning experiences.

The report stated: “Staff are extremely enthusiastic and dedicated to providing children with a wide range of positive experiences.

“Staff are knowledgeable, nurturing and consistent who enthusiastically meet individual needs.

“They benefit from a well-planned, extremely child-centred service.

“Parents are extremely happy with their children’s progress and the service provided.”

The Oak Tree Centre is run by Denbighshire County Council’s leisure service.

Cllr Bobby Feeley, the council’s lead member for wellbeing and independence, said: “I’d like to congratulate the Oak Tree Centre and staff for this excellent report. It reflects the hard work of everyone associated with the centre and shows the council’s commitment to ensure young people are being supported to achieve their potential.”

Since the last inspection in 2016, leaders at the centre have invested a lottery grant and a new outdoor play area has been developed.

Recommendations noted include promoting children’s independence, developing day to day use of the Welsh language further and developing an baby outdoor play area.
