We are very proud to have been graded as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted following our inspection in May. This is the highest level possible.

We inspected Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre on 11–12 May 2011. We judged the centre as outstanding.
During the inspection, we held meetings with the centre’s staff and some of the other people who work from the centre. We were pleased to be able to talk to some of you about the centre and the activities it provides for you. We would like to thank the people who came to the centre specially to meet with us. We took account of the views of all the people we met when we made our judgements about the centre. We also looked at some of the evaluations that you had completed for the centre about the sessions you attend. Many of you told us how warm and welcoming the staff were and that the support you receive is invaluable. One parent said that she did not know what she would do without it.
Leatherhead Trinity is doing some impressive work with individual families, who benefit from the very strong partnership working of the various services that operatefrom the centre. The care provided supports your needs well when you need it most.
There is excellent support provided by the centre staff who visit you in your homes.
You have told us how helpful you have found their advice on behaviour, for example.
You are all made to feel very welcome and the centre is keenly working to encourage more families from Traveller heritages to join activities.
With support from a range of professionals, staff provide you with very good quality advice on healthy eating and the outdoor play provision is excellent. This is helping to improve the health and physical well-being of your children. Staff are careful to ensure that you and your children are safe and you told us that you feel comfortable and welcome in the centre. Your children are very well prepared for nursery and school and are making progress in many areas of their learning.
Many of you have attended the courses run at the centre and you spoke very movingly about the difference that these had made to you. For some you have gone on to achieve childcare qualifications while for others they have helped you to understand how your children learn and develop.
We wish you and your families the best for the future.
