Creations Community Children’s Centre is situated right in the heart of the Pellon Community next to Ling Bob J, I & N school. The Centre opened in January 2009 and is easily accessible on foot, or by road from Rye Lane, along with public transport available right outside.
The Centre is a two storey building offering full daycare, early education, counselling, family support, health services, adult & family learning and a wide range of groups and sessions for children and families which cater towards the needs of the Community.
We pride ourselves on forward thinking and partnership working and we are the first Centre in Calderdale to have the local health visitors co-located, this is having positive effects on children, families and partnership working.
Consultation, Advisory Board and Parent Forums with local families and partner agencies ensure we are continually reassessing what services we offer and what services the community needs.
In March 2011 we were the first phase two children’s centre in Calderdale to have a full centre OFSTED inspection, this looked at the centre as a whole including health services, the links in the community, adult learning, the support offered with returning to work and all other services and activities.
OFSTED have a variety of areas to make a judgment against, the overall grade was satisfactory with 7 aspects graded as good, we believe the key to a good Children’s Centre that has positive effects on Children and families is team work, effective partnership working and a safe environment where the views of children and families are listened to and used to develop services. It is also key that the Centre’s management can successfully identify areas that need to get better and we believe the OFSTED report highlights that Creations Community Children’s Centre is good in all these areas.
Since opening, the Centre is having a positive impact on families in the area.
