A CHILDREN'S centre in Waddon has been criticised after a child had an accident on a climbing frame. Ofsted were called into Peppermint Children's Centre, in Franklin Way, in March after a child was injured while using large piece of climbing equipment and another left the premises unsupervised. While inspector Gillian Cubitt found staff had taken prompt and effective action in both cases, she had concerns whether the climbing frame was safe. Ms Cubitt also said the centre had failed to inform Ofsted of a change of personnel on the board that oversees the nursery. The report, published last week, also said Peppermint's trustees – charity Acorns2Oaks – had not been rigorous enough in ensuring the children's centre complied with legal welfare requirements. Ms Cubitt added: "Consequently, although children make good progress, elements in children's safety requires improvement." Peppermint Children's Centre, which has 49 children on its roll, was rated as "requires improvement". Among the changes it has been asked to implement is a complete safety review of the climbing frame and slide.
