Ofsted good practice example showing how Eastbury Children’s Centre achieved outstanding results in communication and language development.



Eastbury Children’s Centre uses a progressive pathway of core play and communication services: universal and targeted services support children’s growing communication skills from their birth through to the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Parents and carers are involved at every step and become confident in using the strategies that help their children to progress.
